A simple and speedy Thai recipe

This week’s recipe in the Dairy Diary is one of my absolute favourites, and is perfect for a quick weeknight meal.

I adore Thai food and was determined to master my favourite – Pad Thai.

After much experimenting with flavours and ingredients, this is the result.

It’s proved hugely popular
with friends too.

Give it a try – I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
