Pad Mee Korat

This is the lesser known version of Pad Thai. It’s from a town called “Korat” in Thailand, and while it’s not as well known as Pad Thai, I can assure you it’s full of flavour and as moreish as your good old Pad Thai. It’s also quite a lot simpler to make, with less ingredients required, and no need to make the sauce beforehand.
