Stir-fried Noodles Korat Style : Phad Korat - ผัดหมี่โคราช
I seriously craved for "Phad Korat" and I realised that I never once cooked this dish! I told myself that I have to try to cook it.
I tried to cook this dish 3 times and its absolutely delicious! Its best eaten with "Somtum" but I personally think its delicious on its own as well.
