If you already have the ingredients you like to put in your Pad Thai Noodles, but have been using a bottled sauce from your Asian market, why not try making your own? This delicious and very authentic tasting sauce will make your Pad Thai taste great, and it's quite easy to make.
Pad Thai sauce is basically a sweet, sour, and salty sauce. If using palm sugar that comes in a big cube or disc, you'll need to chop it into very small pieces so it melts fast.
Combine the sugar, tamarind paste, lime juice, vinegar, fish sauce, and Siracha style hot sauce in a small pan.
Cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until it boils lightly and the sugar melt. Allow to cool completely.
Keep in a closed container, and store refrigerated until ready to use. It will stay good for a few weeks if kept very cold.
For one to two servings of Pad Thai, add about 3 or 4 tablespoons of the sauce after the noodles have softened and stir in well. For our complete Pad Thai recipe Click Here
