“Pad Mee Korat” The Lesser Known Version of Pad Thai

This is the lesser known version of Pad Thai. It’s from a town called “Korat” in Thailand, and while it’s not as well known as Pad Thai, I can assure you it’s full of flavour and as moreish as your good old Pad Thai.

It’s also quite a lot simpler to make, with less ingredients required, and no need to make the sauce beforehand.

Serves: 2

150g Rice Noodles, soaked in water for 30 mins
100g Tofu Puffs, cut to bite-size pieces
75g Chinese Chives, cut to 1.5 inch pieces
100g Beansprouts
1 Tbsp Oil
1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Tamarind Concentrate (a.k.a. Tamarind Paste)
2 Tbsp Soybean Paste (a.k.a. Fermented Soybean Sauce)
1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Thai Seasoning Sauce
2 Tbsp Sweet Dark Soy Sauce (or Kecap Manis)
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1/4 cup Water

Easy Pandan Rice Porridge (Khao Tom Gui)

In Thailand we eat these plain congee with a massive range of dishes, from simple pickle to omelette to stir-fries.

Serves: 3-4

1 cup Thai Jasmine Rice
3 Tbsp Sticky Rice
2 Pandan Leaves
4-6 cups Water

Note: if you don’t serve it immediately the rice will continue to absorb water. This is absolutely fine. Just add more hot water and stir to mix it all up before you serve.
