Macaroni Thai style/Thai Pasta

Another recipe from Shaju’s Kitchen which is being developed in-house. Thai Macaroni is a variation of the Thai chicken stir fry/Pad Gai. This is nothing but the Pad gai with some more veggies and some macaroni which is the main ingredient. This can be served as a main dish for the breakfast or as a evening snack. Kids would love to have this with some reduced pepper at last.
