Classic Homemade Pad Thai

  • Spicy

Add in more chili sauce or dried chili flakes if you are a fan of spicy food




Pad Thai is one of few food that you must try while in Thailand. That’s the reason why I share this cooking recipe.  I like to prepare this stir fried noodle at my own kitchen. It’s not too complicated to cook, yet there are more ingredients to prepare. This recipe can be a good alternative to prepare home cooked noodle.
