Vegetarian Pad Thai Recipe | From My Brother’s Kitchen

This is an indianized vegetarian version of the classic recipe of Thai cuisine – Pad Thai. This is from my brother’s kitchen. Before we get into the recipe, I would like to tell something about my brother. He is a great cook. He cooks with super ease. I am a great fan of his Biryani and Mushroom Masala. This dish is a delicious combination of rice noodles, vegetables and bean sprouts. The original recipe calls for fish sauce. Here it is replaced with soya sauce, tomato sauce and red chili sauce. Try this and you will definitely love it!

Basil is known as the ‘King of Herbs’ and ‘The Royal Herb’.
