Anjum Signature

Tailored to Taste
This isn’t a traditional Pad Thai, but is inspired by the delicious and famous Thai noodle dish and has that wonderful balance of sweet, sour and savoury typical of the original. Change up the ingredients to suit what you have at home and how you like to eat, add chilli or remove the nuts, you really can tailor-make this to your own tastes.
Ingredients
  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Thai Red Curry (coconut milk included)
  • 1-11/2 tbsp. veg oil
  • 130g flat rice noodles, cooked as per packet instructions
  • 100g firm tofu, cubed - or use tofu puffs (these don’t need frying just halve and add with the coconut milk)
  • 1 spring onion, sliced
  • 100g broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 80g bean sprouts
  • 1 rounded tbsp. palm sugar, or to taste - or substitute with your preferred sweetener
  • 1-1 1/4 tbsp. tamarind paste to taste (they can differ in strength depending on the brand, the darker and thicker, the stronger. Here we use a typical supermarket brand which isn’t too thick).
  • 2-3 tbsp. peanuts, roughly chopped or pounded

Optional Garnish - Sliced red chillies, chopped peanuts, lime wedges, fresh coriander

Method
  1. Heat half the oil in a wok or large frying pan and carefully fry the tofu until golden on all sides. Set aside. Heat the remaining oil, add the dried red chilli from the small sachet in the curry kit and cook for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the broccoli and continue to fry for 2 minutes, adding splashes of water to steam-fry until the broccoli is just about cooked.
  3. Add the red curry paste and coconut milk from the kit and the aromatics from the small sachet, along with the sugar and tamarind and stir. Add the noodles, bean sprouts, tofu and spring onions, coat well in the sauce and bring to a simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add water if it is too dry. It should be of a coating consistency.
  5. Taste and adjust the seasoning, tamarind and sugar to taste. Serve garnished with sliced red chillies, chopped peanuts, coriander and a lime wedge, if you like.
