Jay Pad Thai

Some months ago had dinner with a friend in a Thai restaurant. I had Jay Pad Thai (tofu). And it was super tasty! so I had to try at some point.

As far as I can find, the ingredients are:

Wok noodles, tamarind sauce (tamarid pulp + palm sugar + dark soy sauce, etc), beansprouts, fried shallot, garlic chives, peanuts & lime, Wok broccoli, courgette, green beans & tofu.

But at the end I tried this video with several changes…


  • Tamarind paste: tamarid pulp + grated palm sugar + dark soy sauce (I didnt use fish sauce)
  • Block of firm tofu (smoked optional) 250g
  • soy sauce
  • rice noddles + boiling water
  • 1 big onion (better if you have shallots)
  • 3 sliced garlic cloves.
  • optional: fine chopper ginger (I didnt have that thai pepper)
  • 3 eggs
  • Cauliflower and broccoli (didnt have Chinese chives neither beansprouts…)
  • Crashed peanuts
  • Lime


  • Cover the noddles with boiling water and set aside
  • With some boiling water, mix the tamarind paste until it is a cream
  • Add the grated palm sugar and dark say sauce to the tamarind cream and mix well.
  • As the mix has tamarind pulp, pass it through a strainer using a spoon so you a sauce without solids. Taste it! Set aside.
  • In a hot wok with some olive oil. Add the tofu, cook until golden. Add a bit of soy sauce.
  • Add the onion, fry until soften
  • Add sliced garlic and ginger. Cook for a minute, dont burn it!
  • Add noddles and tamarind sauce, mix all well.
  • In the wok, set aside a bit the noodles and the beaten eggs. Cook for a bit the eggs and then mix with the noddles.
  • Add the cauliflower and broccoli. Mix well.
  • Remove the wok from the heat, add the peanuts and and squeeze a lime.

The picture is from two days after and although doesnt look great, it is tasty (with room for improvement)

Dune3: Children of Dune

Just finished the third book fo Dune. At some points was quite engaging about all the conspirations, unexpected events, etc. But all the dialogs about the dreams, mixing souls, pass/future were a bit dull as they looked like repetitive. Looking for the next one but I am bit concerned as I guess a bit the next plot…
