A simple noodle dish with lentils and vegetables


Number of serving: 3
170 g rice noodles

170 g green beans

1 carrot weighing 100 g

1 tbsp or more tamari

1 tbsp sambal olek

1 tbsp rice wine vinegar

4 tbsp oil

3/4 cup split mung daal or mix of mung and urad

salt to taste


  • String the beans, peel carrot and cut them in fine strips or any shape. Mix tamari, sambal olek and rice wine vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Sift through the mung daal quickly for any unwanted stones ( usually the split ones have it). Wash and drain.
  • Place lentils, water and salt in a saucepan and bring it to boil on medium heat.In another bowl or pot soak rice noodles in hot water for 5 minutes and then drain or cook as directed on the packet.
  • Let the lentils boil gently with a lid on the pot for 12- 15 minutes or until they are tender and not mushy (you will see the skin separating out).
  • Immediately drain lentils in a colander and run cold water for 2-3 minutes to prevent cooking further. Discard the skin as much as you can by rinsing out in water. Transfer lentils to a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan or wok. Stir fry carrots and beans until tender and slightly crisp. Add the seasoning mixture to the vegetables. Give a quick stir.
  • Add noodles, lentils and salt to taste. Mix well and serve hot.
