Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb. Rice Noodles, dried or fresh
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp Urad Dal
  • 3 tbsp Cashews
  • 1 Medium Red Onion, thinly sliced
  • 3~4 Thai Green or Red Chilies
  • 8~10 Curry leaves
  • 1 cup Fresh grated coconut or use ½ cup dried coconut*
  • To taste Salt

Instructions
 

  • Break the rice noodles into 3" pieces. Cook them as per package instructions. I used dried noodles. I put them in boiling water, turned off the heat and covered the pan and left it for 3~4 minutes. Drained and rinsed with cold water. Then keep aside until ready to use.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil on medium flame. Add the mustard seeds and once they start to pop, add the urad dal and cashews. Cook until they are golden brown.
  • Add the onions, curry leaves green chilies and cook for 3~4 minutes or until the onion is lightly browned around the edges.
  • Add the grated coconut and stir fry 1~2 minutes or until the coconut turns golden brown.
  • Stir in the cooked rice noodles and salt. Toss to make sure all the ingredients are well combined and the noodles are heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve right away.

Notes

  • If using fresh noodles - add the noodles to boiling water, soak for 30 seconds. Drain, rinse with cold water. Make sure not to soak the noodles for too long.
  • If using dried coconut, then soak it in hot water for at least 15 minutes. Drain and use as needed.
