Vegan Thai Peanut Noodles

Welcome to another new year and a new edition of Blogging Marathon. For Week 1 of BM #48, I chose to showcase 3 Thai dishes popular at home. 

My family is a great fan of Oriental cuisine and so it was a delight for the family to enjoy Thai dishes!! For Day 1, here is a version of Thai Peanut Noodles which has been very popular with my family. I have made these noodles umpteen number of times varying the ingredients as per my pantry ingredients.
