  • Wok


  • 125 gm dried Pad Thai noodles
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 chicken thigh fillets, sliced
  • 8 raw prawns peeled and de-veined
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 small brown onion cut into wedges
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • 150 gm firm tofu

  • 30 gm unsalted roasted peanuts crushed


  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste/puree

To serve

  • Prepare the noodles according to packet instructions. Once ready, drain and rinse under warm running water.

  • Make the sauce by whisking ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Heat oil in a wok over high heat. Fry the chicken for 30 seconds on one side without stirring. Give the chicken a quick stir to partially cook the other side, then remove from pan and set aside in a bowl.
  • Repeat with the prawns, once done set aside with the chicken.
