Notes

Note: this recipe makes roughly 6 servings but only keeps in the fridge for up to 4 days. If you plan on using for 6 lunches, you may need to store some portions in the freezer.
 
Note: because you are adding some these are going to have a bit of spice to them.  You can reduce or omit the curry paste (although I really enjoyed the flavor it brings), to make these more kid friendly.
