Step 1

To make the laksa paste, drain the chillies and place in a food processor with the eschallots, garlic, ginger, red chillies, lemongrass, nuts, shrimp paste, turmeric, coriander, sugar and peanut oil.

Step 2

Whiz in the processor until everything is finely chopped and forms a paste. This paste can be kept in a glass jar in the fridge until needed.

Step 3

Heat the peanut oil in a wok over medium heat. Add the spice paste and stir-fry for about 5-6 minutes until fragrant.

Step 4

Add the chicken stock and coconut milk, and stir to combine. Bring to the boil, then decrease heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 5

Meanwhile, soak the dried rice noodles in a large bowl of boiling water for about 5 minutes until soft. Drain. Divide the noodles among serving bowls and place chicken on top. Ladle over the hot soup.

Step 6

Garnish with the bean sprouts, spring onions, Vietnamese mint leaves, coriander and fried eschallots.
