6. Mix well and cook for just 1 minute more. Switch off the heat.
7. Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and snow peas. Serve Hot…Hot

Note:

  1. You can use any type of Pad Thai noodles. I have even made the same recipe with whole wheat pasta and it taste super delicious.
  2. Any other variety of veggies / sprouts can also be added (except tomatoes)
  3. Liquid aminos is a great alternative to regular soy sauce. Since they are made with naturally occurring sodium from soybeans.
