Recipes: How to Make Prawn Phad Thai
18th Jun 2014
Phad Thai is a traditional street food dish in Thailand with stir-fried rice noodles, egg, vegetables, cashews and flavoured with tamarind.
The dish was made popular in Thailand during world war 2 as a way for the government to reduce domestic rice consumption. Phad Thai has since become one of Thailand's national dishes and is a firm favourite at the Zen Garden Restaurant.
