Pad Thai Noodles

Pad Thai Noodles
  • 7 ounces 1/4-inch thick rice stick noodles
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons raw peanuts, or more to taste
  • 6 Thai chile peppers, seeded and minced, or more to taste
  • 1 shallot, minced, or more to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste
  • 1 pound boneless chicken, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/3 cup extra-firm tofu, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons tamarind paste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper, or to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 pound large shrimp - peeled, deveined, and tails removed (optional)
  • 1 cup bean sprouts (optional)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh chives (optional)
  • 1 lime, juiced


  1. Place noodles in a large bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside until noodles are flexible but still firm, about 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat until it starts to smoke. Add oil; heat until it shimmers. Add peanuts; cook and stir until roasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from wok.
  3. Stir chile peppers, shallot, and garlic into the oil; cook and stir until garlic just begins to brown, about 30 seconds. Add chicken and tofu; cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes. Add noodles, stirring quickly to mix in and prevent them from sticking. Add sugar, tamarind paste, fish sauce, and white pepper together; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
  4. Push noodle mixture to one side of the wok; crack egg into the empty space. Stir until scrambled, 1 to 2 minutes; fold into noodles. Stir in shrimp; cook until opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Add roasted peanuts, bean sprouts, chives, and lime juice; cook and stir until flavors combine, 1 to 2 minutes more.
