Granulated sugar
White vinegar
White vinegar
Green onions
Vegetable oil

Chopped garlic
Bean sprouts
Ground roasted chiles
-(see note at end)
Unsalted roasted peanuts
Lime wedges

1. Soak noodles for 20-25 minutes in enough warm water to cover them. They
should be flexible and soft, but not so soft that they can be mashed easily
with the fingers. Later cooking in liquid will soften them more. Drain
them throughly in a colander while preparing the other ingredients.
Traditionally they are left in full-length strands, but you may cut them
into 8 inch lengths if you find it easier to stir-fry then that way.

2. Peel and devein the shrimp leaving the tails intact(or remove if
preferred) Slice chicken, pork into 1/8 inch strips 1-2 inches long.

3. Mix the fish sauce, sugar, vinegar, and paprika in a bowl and stir
until the sugar dissolves. Set aside. Slice green onions both the green
and white parts, diagonally into 1-1/2 inch long pieces. Set aside.

4. Heat a wok, add the oil and swirl over the surface. Add the garlic and
stir fry until light golden. Add the meat and stir-fry until shrimp is
pink. If using chicken or pork stir-fry until pink disappears. Add the
noodles and toss lightly to coat with oil and the distribute meat and
garlic( I often do this in a larger pot since things tend to come out of
the wok).

5. Add the liquid from step 3 and bring it to a boil rapidly, gently
folding the noodles without breaking them. Reduce heat to medium and boil
the mixture, folding frequently until the noodles have absorbed the liquid
(I find a pasta server works great for this step).

6. Lift the noodles gently from one side of the wok. Pour a little oil
along the side of the wok, then break the egg ad slip it into the oil.
Break the yolk and cover the egg with the noodles immediately. Repeat this
on the opposite side with the other egg. Allow eggs to cook undisturbed,
over moderate heat until they are set and almost dry. Additional oil may by
added if the eggs or the noodles begin to stick to the wok.

7. When the eggs are set and almost dry, fold them gently but rapidly into
the noodles. Try not to break the noodles, which will be soft and fragile
at this point. An effective way is to insert the scoop under the eggs,
lift it through, and fold the mixtureover. Continü the lifting and
folding motion until the eggs are broken up and well distributed.

8. Add the green onions (and bean sprouts if you prefer them mixed in) and
toss the entire mixture quickly and gently, stll avoiding breaking the
noodles. Cook for about 2 minutes or until onions are tender.

9. Take a large platter spread with bean sprouts(if you left them out
above). Spread Pud Thai from wok over top. Sprinkle ground chilies(see
note) and ground peanuts over the top and squeeze lime over the top. Or
serve toppings seperatly for each diner to add according to taste.

Note on chilies: Buy whole dried chiles and grind since pre-ground often
lack the "bite" of whole ones. Thai chilies may be used (_VERY_ hot), or
milder American chiles may be used. The Thai chilies are know as Prig
hang. They may also be found in Mexican food sections under the name
"Chiles Arbol". Use sparing if you aren't used to them they are quite
