Pad Thai Noodles with Tamarind Sauce and Crushed Peanuts

On with 0 Comment
Pad Thai Noodles with Tamarind Sauce and Crushed PeanutsThis is a variant of classic Pad Thai noodles recipe. I've tried to gel two different ingredients with opposite texture and flavor. Tamarind sauce gives it the required zing and crushed and lightly roasted peanuts add crunchiness to the entire preparation. I keep the ingredients ready for this recipe and prepare the noodles quickly at breakfast time as family members literally order it. Apart from peanuts, you can also add some roasted and finely shredded cashew nuts and almonds. Similarly, tamarind sauce can be further enhanced by adding some mint and grated coconut in it. Since Pad Thai noodles taste best when they're piping hot, avoid refrigerating the leftovers of this tasty preparation.
