Thai Noodles

Noodles are one amazing food. They come in so many different shapes and sizes and anything and everything can be added to them to make it flavorful.

I had these Thai noodles in a food court the other day. It was so flavorful and tasty that I could guess every individual ingredient added to it, which made it really easy to make it!

Ingredients:

Flat rice noodles – Approx 8 oz

Spring onions – 1 bunch (finely chopped)

Baby bok choy – 2 to 3 heads ( chopped)

Bean sprouts – 1 ½ cup

Soft tofu – ½ cup (cut into cubes)

Coriander/ cilantro– ¼ cup chopped

Vegetable stock- 4 Tbsp (optional)

Groundnuts/ peanuts -½ cup roasted peanuts, coarsely ground

Oil

Ingredients to make sauce:

Tamarind paste- ¾ Tbsp

Chilli garlic sauce- 2 Tsp

Soy sauce– 3 to 4 Tbsp

Stir fry sauce- 2 Tbsp

Brown sugar- 3 Tbsp

Water- ¼ cup

Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl and keep aside.

Preparation:

Soak noodles in hot water for 8-10 minutes or until soft.  Heat a wok or frying pan over medium high. Add 2 tbsp of oil, stir fry bok choy and spring onions until they turn dark green in color. Now add the noodles along with vegetable stock and stir fry for 2 minutes.

Mix tofu with the noodles and stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the sauce slowly and continue stir frying. Toss the noodles well so that the sauce is evenly spread to noodles. Add extra sauce if required.

Add bean sprouts, mix well. Noodles are cooked well when they are soft and become sticky. Remove from heat, sprinkle coarsely ground peanuts and garnish with coriander/cilantro.

  3. I agree there is nothing better than noodles, I could eat them everyday, well I almost do, until my husband complains that he would like to see a potato once in a while. Potatoes are over-rated in my opinion, but he is Irish.
