  1. Soak the rice noodle into cold water for 1hr.

  2. Prepare all of your ingredients. Thai fish sauce might be hard to find in your local grocery store but if it’s not available you can use regular fish sauce this goes the same with Thai chili sauce. Use a fresh cured tofu cut it into ½ inch thick cubes.

  3. To create pad thai sauce take a small bowl then mix in the bowl the lime juice, brown sugar, vinegar, Thai fish sauce and Thai chili sauce, using a fork or a small wire whisk stir the sauce until well combined. Set aside for later use.
  4. Begin the cooking process by heating a pan or a wok with vegetable oil over medium heat.
  5. Add the cube of tofu into the pan then fry it in oil, keep monitoring the tofu until the bottom sides turn into golden brown then flip each cube of tofu in the other side, do this until all sides of the tofu are golden brown, then set the tofu at the side of the pan.
  6. Add the minced garlic and onion into the vacant surface of the pan then saute it until lightly brown.
  7. Add the shrimp to the pan then saute it together with the tofu and sauteed garlic and onion, cook it until both sides of the shrimp turn orange.
  8. Add the soaked rice noodle and the chili powder into the pan, stir it a little then add the pad thai sauce that you made earlier. keep stirring noodle cause the rice will quickly absorb the sauce, stir it to make the sauce evenly coat the noodle.
  9. Add the egg then stir it with your ladle, let it sit there in the heat for a while until the egg is cooked, once the egg is cooked stir the egg into the noodle to evenly distribute the egg within the noodle.
  10. Add half of the ground peanut and all of the bean sprout into the noodle then stir it until well combined.
  11. Transfer the pad thai noodle into your desired serving plate then top it with chopped chives and the remaining half of the ground peanut
