  • 2 T coconut or olive oil
  • 150 g tub Woolworths fresh laksa paste
  • 400 g can coconut milk
  • 1 cup water or chicken stock
  • 2 t brown sugar
  • a pinch  salt
  • 2 T fish sauce

  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 spring onion, sliced, to garnish

Cooking Instructions

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the curry paste. Fry until fragrant for 3 minutes, then add the coconut milk.
2. Half-fill the empty can with the water or stock and add to the pan, then add any remaining water or stock. Add the sugar, salt and fish sauce.
3. Add the chicken breasts, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 15–20 minutes, turning often to allow even cooking. Do not boil as the chicken will be tough. Meanwhile, pour boiling water over the noodles and soak for 5 minutes. Drain to serve. Adjust seasoning if you want more salt.
4. Add the lime juice and simmer for a few more minutes. Remove from the heat, add the noodles and garnish. Serve warm.
Cook’s note: Roast 2 x 500 g packs Woolworths mixed roast vegetables and add to the curry just before serving if you want a vegetable curry.
