Fried Thai Glass Noodles

Fried Glass Noodles

I am back in Singapore for my annual reunion with my family in Singapore and has been travelling a bit in Germany before that, so my apologies for the lapse in posting. This dish is one of my favourite take-out item in a local Thai restaurant in Lund because it's the spiciest item they have and it taste quite decent in my opinion. As usual, it's always easier to cook at home because not only is it cheaper, but you can choose to have healthier options (like use less oil, more vegetables etc). I think I came pretty close to recreating it, but of course, while I'm in Singapore, it would be in one of those Thai restaurant I will be ordering it!

One thing to note is the liberal use of Maggi sauce (as pictured) by most Thai restaurants in Sweden I think, so if you don't manage to get this sauce, just season it accordingly to your taste with other sauces mentioned in the recipe.
