Tip

If your coriander has the roots attached, cut them off, trim and clean before adding to the Thermomix bowl with the onion and garlic - extra flavour!

Stir-fried chicken strips, cooked separately on the stove, can be used in place of mince in this recipe.

I use Squid brand of Fish Sauce and other common brands in Australia and all suit this recipe. If cooking in another country, check your brand of Fish Sauce to ensure it is not labelled 'double strength', as this will result in the sauce tasting too fishy; if labelled 'double strength', reduce amount by half.

    Submitted by Dan3in3 on 6. July 2017 - 20:13.

    Was a pleasant dish but a bit sweet. Kids liked it though. I reduced the fish sauce to avoid the fishy taste people have mentioned. The chicken mince also ended up looking like grains of rice so I'd use chicken breast and shred if I make it again as it all looked a bit mushy at the end.

    This was delicious, it could've done with some lime juice or tamarind for an extra flavour hit but was great nonetheless. Also cooked the omelette on the stove.

    Delicious!

    what a great recipe. I cooked the egg on the stove which cut out a few steps and always delivers good results.  I also used shredded chicken leftovers. I used heaps of coriander and served with lime.

    Easy peasy. 7 year old said "It's better than the restaurant" I love that child.

    Submitted by Cas77 on 16. January 2016 - 21:11.

    It was ok, lacking flavour a bit though. 

    Added some lemon juice at the end and thinking maybe lime juice next time. It was nice but lacking flavour and the tang that you get in a resturant. Also didnt all fit in the thermoserver so quickly added all at the end to a big mixing bowl to stir together. Also used chicken mince and cooked egg and chicken 10mins first, and mince an extra 5mins. Will make again and double to sauce, double the egg and add lime juice.

    Submitted by Manniekross on 12. July 2015 - 07:16.

    Was not a fan of this dish unfortunately. I had to adjust the directions as my omlette and mince were no where near cooked in the set time. I ended up cooking them separately. I felt there was too much fish sauce and it resulted in a fishy aftertaste.

    Loved the flavour in this recipe. The egg needed 15mins to cook and the pork mince needed about 18mins. Will cook both the egg and mince separately next time in a frying pan with a little peanut oil. My daughter absolutely loved this! Will definitely cook again with these alterations

    LOVE this, it's a new family fave. 

    Can you please change recipe to say 900ml boiling water though. Sometimes I remember, other times I just get incredibly frustrated that the eggs take so much longer to cook. 

    Thank you for this amazing recipe, it's my anti-thermo hubby's favourite dinner!

    Submitted by Jess_Ryan on 24. April 2015 - 14:53.

    I must admit I was a little disappointed in this recipe. Although I think it could be great with a few alterations. The egg needs a lot longer than suggested to cook. I would prefer shredded chicken rather than mince as the mince seemed to become one with the sauce making for a fairly thick dry dish. The flavours were nice although I added a squeeze of lime onto mine as i felt it needed it.

    Second time I've made this and it's delicious and easy! Went with sweet chilli sauce and slightly less brown sugar. Minced my own chicken thighs first too. Also I find the eggs need cooking for more like 10 min. Thanks for this recipe, sure to be a regular.

    Submitted by KirstyThorley on 30. November 2014 - 15:12.

    I just made this ...YUM! I pre heated the water and added eggs n chicken when it had reached tempreature (i still needed to cook 3 eggs for 10mins).  I doubled the crushed nuts, made 1.5 times the sauce mixes, added the juice of 1 lime and used a chicken breast (shredded) 250g bag of sprouts; 200g bag rice noodle and added a shredded carrot to last cooking phase... Thanks for sharing will definatly use again!

  • Vague & confusing. I did not

    Submitted by bbsb007 on 28. November 2014 - 20:02.

    Vague & confusing.

    I did not enjoy following this recipe at all. I found it vague (a 'packet' of noodles or bean sprouts can range from 250g to 1kg, resulting in a lot of wastage), disjointed ('meanwhile') and the way off the mark with cooking times (after 5 mins the egg wasn't cooked at all - the temp barely made it to 70 by 5 mins, and the chicken was completely overcooked). Also, it doesn't mention that you need a thermoserver until half way through the recipe.

    Overall it did not taste like any Pad Thai I've ever had. There is no tofu or vegetables, and all we could taste was onion & fish. Also, the chicken had the consistency of tuna, which added to the overall dissapponting outcome of this dish.

    Not sure why everyone else found it so amazing? Would not recommend at all...

    Really nice flavours - it would be helpful to know the package size of the rice & bean sprouts used - the only ones I could find were quite large packets & I struggled with the proportions - think I ended up with too much noodle!

    I'm sorry louiseburr, but I'm not very happy with your recipe! It makes SO much, and tastes SOOOO good and is so easy, I'm in danger of turning into Pad Thai tmrc_emoticons.)

     

    Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe. One tip that I would add - don't forget a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, that just sets it off perfectly. Also, in addition to all the previous comments, I too found that the egg needed to be cooked for about 3 times as long as it says. Perhaps if the water is boiling when you start out then the time is correct. Either way, it was a simple correction
