Vegetarian Phad Thai

We got a chance to visit Phuket, Thailand few months back ..
And the local street food there is legend ….wait for it…dary….
Needless to say Phuket is a very beautiful place with lot of things to do..
Snorkeling is a must do when u r there…The underwater world is amazing with colorful tropical fish in all sizes and beautiful coral gardens

Ever since we came back from there I have been desperately trying to make Thai dishes..
My version of Green curry didn’t even come close to the version I had there..
In fact it didn’t even come anywhere near the Green curry we get it here in SingaporeL

However Phad Thai and Tom yam soup came closer to the version I had there…at least that is the verdict I got from my Hubby:-)

Pad Thai is a stir-fry dish of rice noodles, tofu, bean sprouts, egg and fish sauce. It is one of Thailand's best-known dishes.
Since I am a vegetarian, I conveniently omitted egg, fish sauce, Shrimp paste etc.

So here is the recipe

150 g Flat rice noodles
1 small red capsicum
I Onion
40 gms Bean Sprouts
4 Small Tofu puffs
2 Spring Onions
1 Garlic clove crushed
1 Chilli Padi/Small Red Chilli
1 table spoon sesame oil

For the sauce
1.5 tea spoon Sambal Chili paste
1 table spoon Lime Juice
2 tea spoon Soy sauce
A pinch of brown sugar.

For seasoning
Coriander Leave Chopped
Roasted peanut Crushed
Little bean sprouts

Mix all the ingredients for the sauce and keep aside.

Cook the noodles in boiling of water for 4 minutes and drain in a Colander. Pour some cold water on it so that it doesn’t become soggy

Heat the oil in a Wok. Once hot enough add in the chopped Garlic and Chilies. Sauté for a minute
Add in Onion and Capsicum and cook for a minute or two.
Once the onion becomes soft,Add in the Sprint Onion, Bean sprouts and Tofu puffs .
Add in the sauce and stir well
Add in the cooked noodles; stir well to coat the noodles with the sauce.

Sprinkle the bean sprouts, crushed peanuts and coriander leaves
