    About this recipe: This is one of my favourite easy-to-make Indian recipes. Although I try to make it the best as I can, my gran is THE BEST at this... the smell of which reminds me of my school days!

    Serves: 6 

    • 400g rice noodles
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
    • 2 dried red chillies, chopped
    • 3 tablespoons cooked brown lentils
    • 4 tablespoons roasted peanuts
    • 70g desiccated coconut

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
