Pad Thai noodles with lime and Cilantro Recipe Request

"Does any one have a good recipe for Pad Thai noodles with lime and

This was requested by Honeyone.

I have this version of pad thai... I guess you can add your own cilantro(coriander) and lime.

I saw another version online and the comments on it was it was too salty and had too much fish sauce..

I have bunches of asian recipes...lolzz.. my wife is Malay.

Pad Thai - Vegetarian

* 2 qt ; water
* 3/4 lb mung bean sprouts
* 6 oz rice noodles (1/4-inch wide)


* 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
* 3 tbsp catsup
* 1 tbsp brown sugar
* 1/4 cup fish sauce* or soy sauce

Remaining Ingredients

* 3 tbsp peanut oil or vegetable oil
* 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
* 1 tbsp fresh chile, minced or
* 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
* 2 cup carrots, grated
* 4 large eggs, lightly beaten with a pin
* 2/3 cup peanuts, chopped
* 6 to 8 scallions, chopped (about 1 cup)


*Fish sauce is made from fermented salted fish. It can be found in Asian food stores and requires no refrigeration after opening.

In a covered pot, bring the water to a rolling boil. Blanch the mung bean sprouts by placing them in a strainer or small colander and dipping it into the boiling water for 30 seconds. Set aside to drain well. When the water returns to a boil, stir in the rice noodles and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until tender but firm. Drain the cooked noodles, rinse them under cool water, and set them aside to drain.

Prepare the remaining ingredients and have them near at hand before you begin to stir-fry. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the garlic and chile, swirl them in the oil for a moment, and stir in the grated carrots. Stir-fry for 1 minute. Push the carrots to the sides to make a hollow in the center. Pour the beaten eggs into the center and quickly scramble them. When the eggs have just set, pour in the sauce mixture and stir everything together. Add the drained rice noodles and mung sprouts, and toss to distribute evenly. Stir in the peanuts and scallions, and serve at once.
