Thai Food - Pad Thai

The archetypal Thai street-food, we ate plenty of this on our last trip to Thailand, particularly in Bangkok.

Cheap and cheerful and always freshly cooked in front of you, it's a guaranteed tasty supper.

Back at home in Brunei we decided to try it ourselves...  and let me tell you, it's not quite as effortless as the ladies on the stalls make it look, even when you lazily use a sachet of paste!  However, it's not difficult and we'll certainly make it again.

We wanted a vegetarian meal, so used firm tofu instead of meat.  This was delicious, and something I'll definitely use next time I make this dish.

Thick rice noodles soaking in cold water before boiling:

Lots of vegetables; this is a healthy dish!  Several chillies went in too, plus a beaten egg.

The finished Pad Thai - made entirely according to the instructions on the back of the packet!

We seasoned it at the table with a splash of fish sauce and a squeeze of fresh lime.
