Some tips from Alita Ofek for Pad Thai:

Sweet Pad Thai, adapted to the western palate.

In Thailand, a little tamarind sauce is added for a little more sourness,

and you are also welcome to add a tablespoon to the sauce.

You can prepare the Pad Thai with chicken or with tofu, using exactly the same method.

It is recommended to pre-soak the rice noodles for two hours in lukewarm water, but you can also cook them in boiling water according to

the manufacturer's instructions and wash them in cold water immediately after finishing to stop the cooking.
