Veg Phad Thai Noodles

Stir fried Noodles and veggies with a unique Thai flavor and taste using special thai sauces



Phad Thai, probably the best-known of all Thai noodles dishes, takes only few minutes to cook if you are ready with the ingredients. For this noodles preparation use thick ribbon-like rice noodles for authenticity, or simply use any rice noodles / egg noodles as per your preference. Tamarind, commonly used in all Asian cooking, has a unique sour flavor, but you can substitute with freshly squeezed lemon juice......
