Stir Fried Courgettes (Or Luffa!) And Egg Recipe (Pad Buab Khai)


Share This Recipe

A healthy, simple, yet flavour packed courgette stir fry recipe that is very mild, savoury and rich. It is best eaten with some steamed rice to absorb the sauce, however if you want to eat it on its own you can, just leave out the soy sauce or it will be too rich and salty.

We have used courgettes instead of luffa as we can’t buy that where we live, however if you can, then you can use whichever you prefer.
