Comments (any other comments)
1. This dish gets cooked really fast, so make sure all your components are ready before you start cooking. 2. Though this is traditionally made in a wok, I prefer using a flat bottomed wide pan so as to get an even cook on the vegetables. 3. Since rice noodles absorb the sauce, I recommend adding more liquids, even if it seems a lot. 4. Don’t add water in the sauce if you prefer the noodles on the drier side. 5. Make sure you don’t overcook the vegetables and the protein. 6. Get creative with the vegetables, proteins and the garnishes here. Another ingredient for garnish could be roasted peanuts. 7. Almost all the ingredients in the sauce contain salt, so do not add additional salt without tasting. 8. Eliminate fish sauce while making vegetarian version.
