Stir Fried Spicy Vermicelli with Prawn (Woon-Sen Pad Khee-Mao Koong)

Inspired by my dieting, I found that using glass noodles made of "Mung beans" are lower in calories and rich in protein.  This is a lovely spicy dish that always fills my stomach without needing rice.  This combination with the fresh chilli gave me loads of energy.  I hope it will do the same for you....@^_^@

Just came across your site and may I say, it is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!

I am a HUGE fan of Thai food (just been to Bangkok 3 weeks ago to learn some authentic Thai cooking!)

With all these amazing recipes on this site, creating my very own Thai "feast" will not be a dream but definitely possible!

Please keep this site up and running as I will definitely be here hunting for recipes regularly!
It will be a shame to see this site be abandoned or even closed!

Please keep up the fantastic work!
