Watch this video

This recipe shows you how to cook an amazing Pad Thai at home.

Pad Thai is commonly served as street food and at most restaurants in Thailand as part of that country’s cuisine.

Pad thai is made with rehydrated dried rice noodles that are stir-fried with eggs and chopped firm tofu, flavored with tamarind pulp, fish sauce, dried shrimp, garlic or shallots, red chili pepper, and palm sugar, and served with lime wedges and often chopped roasted peanuts. It may contain other vegetables like bean sprouts, garlic chives, pickled radishes or turnips, and raw banana flowers. It may also contain fresh shrimp, crab, squid, chicken or other animal proteins.

Many of the ingredients are provided on the side as condiments, such as the red chili pepper, lime wedges, roasted peanuts, bean sprouts, and other miscellaneous fresh vegetables. Vegetarian versions may substitute soy sauce for the fish sauce and omit the shrimp entirely.

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 ounces pad Thai rice noodles
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 6 medium shrimp, peeled, deveined (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons 1x½x⅛-inch slices pressed tofu (bean curd)
  • 1 tablespoon sweet preserved shredded radish, rinsed, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 5 tablespoons tamarind water, or 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon tamarind paste mixed with 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon water
  • 1½ tablespoons (or more) Thai fish sauce (nam pla)
  • 1½ tablespoons simple syrup, preferably made with palm sugar
  • 4 garlic chives, 2 cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ teaspoon ground dried Thai chiles, divided
  • 2 tablespoons crushed roasted, unsalted peanuts, divided
  • 2 lime wedges

RECIPE PREPARATION

  • Place noodles in a large bowl; pour hot water over to cover. Let soak until tender but not mushy, 5–10 minutes. Drain; set aside.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add egg; stir until barely set, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp, if using. Cook, stirring, until shrimp and egg are almost cooked through, 2–3 minutes. Add tofu and radish; cook for 30 seconds. Add noodles and cook for 1 minute. Stir in sprouts. Add tamarind water, fish sauce, and simple syrup and stir-fry until sauce is absorbed by noodles and noodles are well coated, about 1 minute. Stir in chopped garlic chives. Add 1/4 tsp. ground chiles and 1 Tbsp. peanuts and toss well. Transfer to serving plates.
  • Garnish with remaining 1/4 tsp. ground chiles, 1 Tbsp. peanuts, and lime wedges.

DENMARK BEAUTIFUL LAKES AND FLOWERS IN THE CITY OF VIBORG

The Viborg Lakes and Borgvold Park

Nørresø and Søndersø in Viborg are attractive fishing areas.

Fishing is permitted from all public areas near the lakes and only a state fishing license is required. However, catching pike, zander, and perch are not allowed. 

You can rent boats at the kiosk in the park “Borgvold” at “Nørresø” (Northern lake).

You can also enjoy a sailing trip on the Viborg lakes on board the ship “Margrethe I”. The trip takes 1 hour.

The trip starts at the jetty at “Golf Salonen”,  Hans Tausens Vej 1, 8800 Viborg. Ticket sale on the boat.

Rich in religious history and bordering two idyllic lakes, Viborg is a sweetly romantic getaway. Slotsgartner T. Rothe landscaped Borgvold park in 1864 in a romantic style with a music stand, canal, bridges and winding paths. The park contains many exciting plants, including a collection of evergreen plants, where the large rhododendrons, in particular, are brightly colored during flowering.

Borgvold Park

Today, Borgvold is a beautiful and peaceful place leading to the Viborg Lakes, where medieval travelers were transported across the lakes in barges. 

In 1896, architect Henrik Hagemann erected a music pavilion, where outdoor events have since been held during the summer period.

The area was previously shared between several owners. In 1907, most of the land was handed over to the city in a gift letter from liquor burner David Haubro and his wife Christiane. The couple made a condition that the site “as one of the country’s historic sites should always be protected.

In 1945, garden architect T. Erstadt Jørgensen added a beautiful perennial garden to the park by extension of the forecourt at the music stand.

The sculpture “The Water Girl” made by the German sculptor Ludvig von Schwanthaler was erected in the facility in 1984 as a gift to the municipality from Supreme Court Judge Frants Thygesen and Mrs. Gudrun Thygesen.

In 1989, in the southwestern corner of Borgvold, the Bible Garden was established, which contains plants mentioned in the Old and New Testaments. 

The old historic wooden music stand has since been completely renovated following a fiery fire.

THAI SAUSAGE – HOMEMADE SAUSAGE – HOW TO MAKE SAUSAGE

Watch this video

Why Sai Ua is the most delicious Sausage

Sai ua is a northern Thai sausage made with a combination of pork mixed with a medley of herbs like lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and galangal, and chili.

The mix of meat and aromatic herbs are stuffed into an intestine wrapper and grilled until golden orange-brown.

Hot dogs, kielbasas and bratwursts may be a little more familiar, but Thailand has a host of delicious, boast-worthy sausages you should get to know. Like most Thai dishes, these sausages pack a lot of flavor into their casings. While other countries use methods like curing and smoking, Thais prefer fermenting and drying, which adds flavors unique to the sausages found throughout the region. You’ll see Thai people eating sausage for breakfast, then snacking on sausages on a stick in the afternoon. They are an underrated staple in Thai food culture and worth seeking out.

You’ll find many of the famous sai ua (ไส้อั่ว) vendors at the Wararot Market, located right in the heart of Chiang Mai. Or you can do like the locals and go to the small market across the street from the Chiang Mai University. There you’ll discover a good number of vendors all selling their own variation of this delicious Thai sausage.

If you don’t live in Thailand you can also enjoy this kind of sausage. Just follow the video and you can cook your own at home.

HOW TO MOVE TO DENMARK

The most incredible pumpkins in Viborg, Denmark

It can be difficult to get a permanent residency visa in Denmark if you’re from outside the EU. To enter Denmark, you’ll need a valid passport. As a foreign national, you shouldn’t plan to stay in Denmark for more than 3 months without a visa. This post gives some information about how to move to Denmark.

Requirements for Australian citizens

Australian citizens will need a visa for a long-term stay in Denmark. Generally, one must have lived in Denmark for 8 years, or worked for 4 at a certain income level, before naturally acquiring a permanent residency card. However, the Danish government has many schemes designed to allow expats to move more easily into the country. For example, the Pay Limit Scheme allows expats into the country who expect an annual salary of at least 400,000kr (about 87,000 AUD).

Requirements for EU citizens

People from Nordic countries (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland) can freely live and work in Denmark. For EU citizens, the rules are similar, but non-Nordics must apply for a registration certificate within 90 days of arriving in Denmark.

Requirements for American citizens

Americans moving to Denmark face the same challenges that Australians do. It’s easiest for Americans to move to Denmark as a student, an employee, or as a spouse or partner of a Dane.

Requirements for UK citizens

UK citizens in Denmark have the same rights as EU citizens (check out again after Brexit)

Requirements for students

Students in Denmark from the EU/EEA area or Switzerland only need to secure a place on a course at a Danish university. Students from outside the EU should apply for student visas. This visa is straightforward and can be obtained with proof of ID and an acceptance letter for a Danish university. A student visa will last the length of the academic year.

Residence and work permit

Before you arrive at Denmark and start working, it is important that you find out whether you are required to obtain a residence and work permit.

The rules vary according to nationality. Be aware that the rules will also apply when conducting voluntary or unpaid work.

Do I need a permit?

Citizens from the Nordic countries, the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are entitled to live and work in Denmark. However, if you are an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen and intend to reside in Denmark for more than three months, you must apply for an EU residence document.

Read more about EU residence document at the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI). (new window)

You can also apply for EU residence document at International Citizen Service.

If you are a citizen from a country outside the EU/EEA or Switzerland, you must apply for a residence and work permit before you enter Denmark. If you already legally reside in Denmark, you can submit your application for a residence and work permit on newtodenmark.dk, at a Danish police station or in the Citizen Centre of the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration.

You can read more about how to apply for a residence and work permit in Denmark or find out how to have your competences assessed.

Finding a job and get to work in Denmark

It’s important to speak Danish if you want to get a job in Denmark. All government jobs require Danish fluency, and 40% of the jobs in the country are government-provided. Being fluent in English won’t guarantee that you’re seen as special since most Danes are also fluent. The best way to find a job without speaking Danish is through an engineering or tech job. The more specialized you are in a field, the better.

To get started, here are a few job-search resources in Denmark:

Getting a place to live in Denmark

Finding housing in Denmark can be expensive. It’s recommended that you rent before buying a property. The most popular areas to live in Denmark are in its largest cities: Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg or Odense. The north of Copenhagen is more expensive than the south. It’s easier to find housing if you have a residency permit since many agencies and landlords will request your CPR number.

Apartments for rent are called lejelejlighed. These types of rentals are small and are sought-after in Denmark because they’re the cheapest. Sometimes they have shared communal space. Raekkehus are also sought-after rentals; they’re terraced houses that are larger than most apartments and have small private gardens. To rent property, you’ll have to pay three months of rent upfront as a deposit. You’ll also need to pay this amount through a bank transfer. Most leases run for one year, and there are rental agencies to help you that specialize in dealing with letting to expats. You should expect to sign a rental contract between yourself and the landlord.
