Pad Thai Noodles (Easy Pad Thai)

Spicy good and easy recipe of Pad Thai Noodles (Easy Pad Thai)! This recipe is very easy to put together,great for weeknights and weekend quick lunch fix!

Spicy noodles are always on my list when I need to quick fix dinner/lunch on weekdays or even on lazy weekends.
Mostly my weekends are never relaxed,but on the contrary ,more hectic and full with scheduled tasks  to complete.This recipe is super hit at my place as its quick,hassle-free and spicy,just like from restaurants. My version of Pad Thai is a spicier one,but you can always use the spicy ingredients in moderation and use.

What are the ingredients?
  • Pad Thai Rice Noodles: These are flat broad rice noodles. Usually there is no need to precook them.As per package instructions,decide whether to cook them or just to soak them in water. I had soaked them for 15 mins in cold water before using them in noodles.
  • Fish Sauce: This is the essential sauce to add that necessary flavor to the noodles.  If you want to skip this then try alternating with Oyster sauce if you wish.
  • Sambal Oelek : This chili paste gives great zing to the flavor.But it is totally replaceable with any brand of chili sauce you prefer.
  • Chili Vinegar: Another ingredient which will give that extra punch to the entire dish. Replace it if you have to buy it specially for this recipe with Distilled White Vinegar/ Rice Vinegar.
  • Brown Sugar: I like brown sugar as it is healthier than cane white sugar.But you are at liberty to choose what you want to use in this recipe.
  • Peanuts: Peanuts for me is an essential ingredient in any Thai recipe, specially the noodles. So if you are having allergies then skip it but add it if that's allowed in your diet.
  • Tamarind Paste: The Pad Thai which I had tasted had tamarind in the sauce to taste,but again you can skip it as per personal choice.
