Today we are landing on letter T and my first choice was thai.Thailand is officially called kingdom of thailand .Thai cuisine is famous all over the world for the food here have some exotic dishes love by people all over the world.A traditional thai meal consists of rice which is called khao and with many accompaniments and stews. I wanted to make thai noodles from long time and so chose the very famous Pad thai . I made them the veg version and we enjoyed this mini thai meal a lot. I chose a very healthy and simple salad to go with the pad thai . For the dessert part I made the thai banana in coconut milk I have made them earlier but didn't get a chance to post it but I have made a version of Thai style bananas earlier. So without further ado moving on to my mini meal from thai.
