Pad Thai is a popular Thai dish that is quick and easy to make. Start by soaking rice noodles in warm water until they are soft and pliable. In a hot wok or skillet, stir-fry shrimp or chicken with garlic, tofu, and beaten eggs. Add the soaked noodles and a sauce made with tamarind paste, fish sauce, sugar, and lime juice. Toss everything together until the noodles are coated in the flavorful sauce. Garnish with crushed peanuts, bean sprouts, and lime wedges for an authentic and delicious Pad Thai.
