Thai Pasta Stir Fry ผัดมักกะโรนี - Episode 45


My Thai Pasta Stir Fry recipe is a great "under 30-minutes" meal that the whole family will love. Stir frying is one of my favorite cooking styles, mostly because I really enjoy the fun sounds of a hot sizzling wok. It is usually quick and easy, and it is a great way to use up left over ingredients from other recipes. Thai Pasta Stir Fry is a very popular dish in Thailand that everyone is familiar with. A common misconception in Thailand is that this dish is American or Western. This misunderstanding comes from the use of macaroni pasta, an ingredient which is not common in Thailand. Since the most similar ingredient to a "wheat pasta" in Thailand would probably be egg or rice noodles, most people in Thailand just assume that this dish is popular in Western countries. In fact, this dish is a Thai dish that was heavily influenced by Western-style pasta cuisine. 

This dish taste great and is easy to make. The easiest thing to substitute in this dish is the choice of protein. One of my favorite versions of this dish uses shrimp instead of chicken. I have also had this dish made with squid, which taste great, but might not be for everyone. You can also make it a little more "kid friendly" by taking out the onions.
