Phad Thai Goong Sod (Fried Rice Noodles with Prawns)

Sue and I and our sister, Orra, recently had a Thai inspired dinner party. Orra had taken a cooking class in Thailand and had brought back the recipes and a few packages of spices for Sue and I. We decided to recreate the recipes as best we could for a Thai dinner party. 
The original recipes that Orra had were for single servings and they used fresh ingredients. We had to up-size them to feed a party of 7, plus we had to use dried ingredients. That being said..... I think the dishes all turned out delicious. Want to see all that we made for our Thai dinner? Click HERE
This version of Pad Thai is super simple to make and might just be my new go to for noodles. 

Pad Thai Goong Sod
(Fried Rice Noodles with Prawns)

1 pkg rice noodles
3 Tbsp oil
1/4 cup chives, chopped
3 Tbsp sweet pickled radish, finely chopped
1/4 cup peanuts, chopped
3 small shallots, finely chopped
2 egg
1 - 2 cups prawns, peeled & deveined
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup bean sprouts 

Phad Thai Sauce
3 Tbsp palm sugar
3 Tbsp fish sauce
1/3 cup tamarind paste
1 tsp Thai chili paste

Serve with:
roasted peanuts, chopped
cilantro, chopped
lime wedges
chives, chopped

Place the noodles in hot water and set aside.
Make the Pad Thai Sauce by heating the palm sugar, fish sauce, tamarind paste, and chili paste in a pot. Stir well until sauce is slightly thick. Remove from heat and set aside. 
In a wok or large frying pan, cook chives, radishes, peanuts, and shallots for about 2 minutes. Add in eggs and scramble until cooked. Add in the prawns and stir fry until pink - about 1 - 2 minutes. 
Drain the rice noodles. Add the 3/4 cup water and drained rice noodles to the pan. Stir fry until soft. Add in the Pad Thai Sauce and stir well. Stir in the bean sprouts.
Serve with chopped peanuts, cilantro, lime wedges, and chives. 

Again, we had to fiddle with amounts so if you find your noodles are too dry then you can mix up more of the Pad Thai Sauce. Orra forgot to add the bean sprouts in so we just sprinkled them on top...

It was equally as delicious. 
If you've never tried Pad Thai then this is a great recipe to get you going.
