Welcome to another Thai street food recipe, this time for one of the most popular Thai fried noodle dishes known as pad see ew (ผัดซีอิ๊ว). Pad Thai is also famous, but this Thai dish is less sweet and sour, and more salty and flavored with both light and dark soy sauce. The most difficult thing to think about when preparing this Thai pad see ew recipe (ผัดซีอิ๊ว), is the heat of your pan. It can be a little tricky, so make sure you watch the video to get all my tips. The main thing is that you need to control the heat of your pan so you don’t burn the noodles, and so they don’t get too sticky and clump up. Another thing is that you need to stir the wide rice noodles from the bottom up, doing it carefully and folding the noodles more than just stir frying them.
On the streets of Thailand, pad see ew (ผัดซีอิ๊ว) is often available at local restaurants where they are making stir fried dishes. You just ask the vendor for the dish, and then give them your choice of meat, which is often pork or chicken, and in just a few moments you’ll have a fresh plate of noodles ready to be devoured.
Ok, so for this Thai pad see ew recipes, here are the ingredients you’ll need:
2 tablespoons of oil for frying
3 cloves of garlic
300 grams fresh wide rice noodles (sen yai)
200 grams chicken (alternatively you could really use any meat of your choice)
1 handful of chopped Chinese broccoli (kailan) – I used about 2 stalks for this recipe.
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
½ tablespoon dark soy sauce
½ teaspoon sugar
Pepper, chili flakes, and vinegar for garnish
Again, like I say for all my Thai street food recipes, the list of ingredients that I used, should just be your guide. Ingredients can vary from place to place, and everyone has different taste buds, so use them as a guide, but make sure you do some taste testing so that your pad see ew tastes perfect for you!
For this pad see ew recipe, it took me about 20 – 30 minutes to prepare all the ingredients, mostly chopping up all the chicken and the Chinese broccoli, and gathering all the rest of the ingredients. After everything was ready to go, it didn’t take longer than about 5 minutes to fry it all up and it was ready to be served. I like to garnish pad see ew noodles with a generous scoop of black pepper, some chili flakes to spice things up, and sometimes vinegar to make the noodles sour.
