My favourite chiles come from Warrarut Market in Chiang Mai. They are grown and roasted by hill tribes-so smokey and wonderful. Using date palm sugar makes ahuge difference in Thai cooking not so sweet like white processed sugar. Shanti/Mary-Anne

Hi Petal, I have to use fish sauce. It doesn't go bad I have a big bottle I have been using for 2 years. It just get a little dark so you noodle will look dark but the flavor will be fine. Omitting the bean curd is fine. Enjoy, Randy

Hi Allthai, your stir-fried noodles look perfect to me except the pork addition. Is it ok if I don't use pork? Is it fine if I use lamb or chicken instead of pork ??
