Kuaytiaw Raat Naa ก๋วยเตี๋ยวราดหน้า Stir Fried Rice Noodle With A Silky Sauce
How can I possibly go past some of my favourite noodle dishes if I were to claim this a successful Thai street food week? Kuaytiaw raat naa (stir fried rice noodle with a silky sauce) turned up on our table alongside Kuaytiaw phat si ew (stir fried rice noodle with soy) several times throughout the week, to read more about these dishes click HERE and HERE. You should realised by now how versatile the ingredients shown in the following photo really are, one can easily prepare the following dishes using the same basic ingredients;
1) Kuaytiaw raat naa - for those who love a saucy noodle dish.
2) Kuaytiaw phat si ew - for those prefer a dry and slightly charred noodle dish.
3) Kuaytiaw phat kee mao - for those who love a very spicy noodle dish.
All the dishes mentioned take less than 10 minutes to prepare and I hope these recipes will become handy the next time you want something quick, easy, economical and delicious!
