  • 500 g Jackfruit Drained weight
  • 400 g Khanom Jeen Noodles Rice Noodles
  • 200 g Green Beans
  • 400 ml Coconut Milk
  • 200 ml Water
  • 2 tbsp Mae Jum Thai Green Curry Paste
  • 2 tbsp Palm Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Light Soya Sauce or vegan fish sauce
  • Sweet Thai Basil
  • Red Chilli Mild or Spicy
  • 1-2 Lime



  • Trim the ends of the green beans and cut them into thirds
  • Drain the water from the canned jackfruit, and cut it into smaller pieces

Cooking Method

  • On Med/high heat, fry Thai green curry paste in oil for 1-2 minutes until the paste is loose
  • Add the thick layer of coconut milk with light soya sauce and palm sugar, mix well. Bring to a light boil and simmer for 5 minutes to let the oils rise to the surface
  • Add the remaining coconut milk to the wok with water and jackfruit. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer for 20 minutes
  • In the meantime, boil water in a separate saucepan and drop the khanom jeen noodles. Cook for 2-3 minutes until soft and then rinse under cold water. Pick up a small bundle of noodles and wrap the noodles around two fingers to form a circular shape and place in a sieve or on kitchen tissue to dry. Repeat until all noodles are in bundles.
  • Add green beans to the curry and simmer until beans are cooked.
  • Turn off heat and gently stir in a handful of Sweet Thai basil and extra chillies (if desired). To serve, place a few bundles of noodles in a bowl and pour curry on top with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Enjoy!
