Drunken noodles recipe
(Pad Kee Mao)
let's try our beef Drunken noodles recipe.
It's one of the most famous and typical Thai dishes.
Normally the noodle is seasoned with chili, garlic, sauces
and most importantly basil leaves.
Some people believe that the name "Pad Kee Mao" or Drunken noodle
came from the hot and the spiciness that could cure you from
the hangover. Other believe that it's so hot that only the drunks
would be able to stand it.
Whatever the reason is, don't let me put you off with the spiciness.
As you don't have to put any chili in this recipe and it'd still be lovely.
However if you like it hot and spicy
then add as much chilies as you need.
It's your choice.
