I think part of the recipe is missing. Gkuay dtiow or rice noodles (also known as ban pho to the Vietnamese) are normally soaked for 20 minutes in warm water while you prepare the rest of the pad thai. Fish Sauce is a main-stay of this and most Thai dishes. Where is the lime or tamarind, chiles, date palm sugar, shallots, and dried shrimp which along with alot of garlic make the sauce for the pad thai dish. Plus the normal Pad Thai Garnish of chopped unsalted roasted peanuts is missing I think part of the recipe is missing. Shanti/Mary-Anne
