Place noodles in a medium sized pot and add water, just to cover. Add salt and bring to the boil. After boiling 1 to 2 minutes, transfer noodles to a colander and let cold water run through it for about 3 seconds. Drain and set aside.
Heat oil in a wok; when warm add mustard seed, chilli and lentils. Stir-fry until lentils start getting light brown, then add peanuts and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Stir in coconut and fry it until light brown; add cooked noodles and 60ml water. Keep stirring all together over heat until well mixed, 10 to 20 seconds. Garnish with coriander and serve.
