Indian Stir-Fried Spring Veg Vermicelli With Peanuts

  • Serves: 2
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes

Method

Noodles are a great food to eat for your baby as they're soft, and also make good finger food for your toddler to pick up. This dish is fresh, quick and easy to prepare

 

  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick sauté pan. Add the chillies (if using) and mustard seeds and, once the popping dies down, the chana dal (lentils) and curry leaves.
  2. Once the lentils start to colour, add the red onion, ginger and seasoning and sauté for three to four minutes before adding the turmeric. Fry for 20 seconds, stirring to mix well, then add the rest of the vegetables.
  3. Stir-fry for two minutes, then add the rice noodles and lemon juice and continue to cook for another two minutes, or until the noodles are soft but the vegetables are still crunchy.
  4. Stir in the herbs and peanuts and serve hot or warm.
