A traditional dish loved the world over, Pad Thai is Thailand’s signature recipe.

450g dried rice noodles

2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tbsp groundnut oil

385g peanut butter

1 tbsp paprika

Cayenne pepper to taste

450g beansprouts

110g grated carrots

Cover the rice noodles in a large bowl of hot water for 1 hour.

In a large frying pan or wok, pour ½ tablespoon of oil and add the eggs.

Scramble into medium-sized pieces then transfer to plate.

Season liberally with cayenne pepper.

Drain the noodles.
