Pad Thai in Thai Green Curry

Pad Thai is one of the Thailand's national dishes. It is a dish of stir-fried rice noodles with soy sauce, tamarind juice etc. Also bean sprouts, tofu etc are added along with Thai Seasoning. 

In this dish, I have added Thai Green Curry paste along with the vegetables used to make Thai Green Curry.  Something different, but tastes awesome.. 

Ingredients :
For Main dish
1 Packet Flat rice noodles ( Phad Thai Noodles) Approx 200 gms.or 2 large cups
2-3 tbspns Thai Green curry paste
2 cups blanched vegetables (Broccoli, Sweet Corn, French Beans, Carrot, Capsicum etc.)
3-4 diced mushrooms
1 tbspn Thai Seasoning Mix (Thai mix herbs)
3 tbspns coconut milk powder
2 tbspns olive oil or vegetable oil
Salt to taste

For Garnishing :
Roasted and peeled peanuts
Chopped Spring onions

Preparation :
Heat 4-5 cups of water in a pan

Heat oil in a pan
Add the blanched vegetables and mushroom
Saute the vegetables for 3-4 minutes

Mix the curry paste in vegetables
Then add Thai seasoning powder and coconut milk powder
Add salt to taste
Add 1 -2 tbspns of water to adjust the consistency
Finally add soaked rice noodles to the curry
Stir for few seconds
