You'll find this recipe easier than traditional Pad Thai recipes, and yet the taste is all there. Many of you are discovering that tamarind paste - a traditional ingredient in pad thai - is difficult to find. But I have learned in my travels that originally pad thai was made without tamarind (it didn't become part of the standard recipe until much later) - lime juice was used instead. Try it and see how easy and delicious pad Thai can be!
