1 Mix curry paste, coconut milk and fish sauce together and mix well.
2 Layer all ingredients except last three in a 750ml capacity or larger jar in the order above. Keep last three ingredients in a separate container.

4 Open the jar, stir noodles well and tip into a bowl, if desired. Top with spring onions, chilli and coriander.
Make it gluten free: Check fish sauce and curry paste are gluten free.
- Use ‘shelf-fresh’ noodles, which are precooked and just need to be heated by pouring over boiling water. Break up with a fork before adding to the jar.
- You could also use noodles from instant noodle packs, but check the labels on these — some contain palm oil, which makes them high in saturated fat.
- Or use noodles you’ve precooked. Run them under cold water before packing in the jar.
