Pad Thai, Fried Rice & Dates Pickle

I got the inspiration to make some Pad Thai & Fried Rice after seeing Mriganayani's post. I basically followed her recipe, but I couldn't figure out why my rice turned out so white! I didn't have baby corns for the Pad Thai, so I omitted. I used Mae Ploy Pad Thai Sauce... It's so easy to make that way :) It's funny, my daughter picked up a piece of fried tofu and asked what it was. I knew if I told her it was tofu she wouldn't even touch it again, so I told her it was "Chinese chicken." =)) She bought it and ate it up!

I didn't have this with the Pad Thai, of course, but I thought I'd share it because it was a really nice, quick and tasty pickle. The recipe is from Spicy Chilly and is so sweet and spicy! I really enjoyed it... I decided next time I would reduce the oil just a bit and cut the dates into smaller pieces. I might even add an extra green chili :P

Meeso, was my recipe too oily?..then I should edit with the quantity of it!..yeah a little big pieces than mine...just to avoid getting mashed up while cooking, Meeso...the real recipe has smaller pieces of it...so go ahead!..
Glad that you tried it, Sweetie :)

meeso said...

~ Oh, no! I didn't mean it was too oily! That was just personal preference to reduce for myself... The recipe was perfect!
