Pad preew waan

This is a version with only vegetables, but Pad priew waan is usually combined with fried chicken or breaded fish. I’m of fan of either, but that’s me. I love to combine this with crispy bacon. Do try this with chicken or fish if you are a fan of those, I’m sure most people will like it the original way.
