Thi food has various types of noodles? Frankly speaking, thai food is my absolute favorite. . Today we are going to be looking at “Stir-Fried Pad See Ew”.

Similar to the thai dish “rad na”, – pad see ew also uses flat rice noodles, known as sen yai in Thai. . In Thai language Pad see ew translates to “stir-fry soy sauce,” so, as you can imagine soya sauce is the main ingredient here .

) If you are making the noodles at home from scratch, then you can start with cutting the set dough by hand into 1-inch-wide ribbons -Or – easier would be to just purchase pre packed noodles from a grocery store.

)We can start with soaking the noodles in very hot water for about 25 to 30 minutes, then drain and follow the recipe below

)The noodles are then quickly mixed with sweet thai soya, any kind of protein like beef or chicken ( in this recipe we are going to use tofu), and broccoli.

) It goes without say that in any asian cuisine, a wok is extremely important, (but as a substitute- a nonstick skillet will work if you don’t have a wok.

) [Optional] – Lets look into making the condiment, that would go along with the Pad See Ew. Simply chop 2 or 3 Thai chiles (green or red), cover in rice or distilled vinegar, and allow it to sit while you are cooking (It’s definitely makes a good touch to the dish while eating).

Preparation Time:

  • Prep time 20 to 30 minutes
  • Cook time 10to 15 minutes
  • Serves upto 2
Ingredients
  • Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegan fish sauce, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, plus more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons thick caramel sauce (or ½ teaspoon dark soy sauce)
  • Pad See Ew Noodles (Flat rice noodle)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil, such as canola
  • 1 to 2 cups Chinese Green Leaf (or substitute with regular broccoli also)
  • 4 ounces tofu (or any other source of protein), sliced, pan-fried, and salted
  • Pickled chilies (or red pepper flakes), for serving
  • [Optional] Fresh Ground white pepper
Directions
  1. First, lets prepare the sauce by mixing the fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, and caramel sauce in a bowl. Keep mixing it until the sugar has fully dissolved.
  2. Using your hand, spred out the noodles—this is important as it makes sure that all the noodles are coated equally. (If the noodles are lumpy & stiff, put them in a microwaveable bowl, cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute to soften
  3. Heat the wok pan (or nonstick skillet) over low heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil. Then increase the heat to medium level & add the garlic and stir until you start smelling the fragrance of the garlic, (this process should be about about 1 minute)
  4. Add the protein (in this case – tofu), and 1 tablespoon of the pre made sauce. Use a tong to mix everything proportionally.
  5. Now add the noodles & the green leaf and all the remaining sauce. Keep tossing & mixing the noodles until all of them are coated evenly.
  6. Spread out the noodles ( making sure that all of the noodle are equally touching the wok) for about 30 seconds to minute and let cook. This helps to char the noodles a bit, thus helping the aroma and flavors to infuse into the noodles.
  7. Finally…..season with more soy sauce or fish sauce if needed. Add a pinch of ground white pepper if needed, and then dont forget to serve the Pad Se Ew, along with the pickled chilies which you have left to soak.

And….Volaaa..there you have “Stir Friend” Tofu Pad See Ew
