  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add 4 spring onions and the What the Cluck and cook for 2 mins, before stirring through the ginger and garlic paste, chopped red chilli, lemongrass paste and ground turmeric. Cook for 1 min until fragrant, then add the coconut milk and 500ml boiling water.
  2. Give everything a good stir, then bring to the boil. Cover with a lid and simmer for 5 mins until piping hot. Add the lime juice and season to taste with sea salt. 
  3. Divide the noodles and stir-fry mix between 4 bowls, then ladle over the broth, ensuring the What the Cluck is evenly split between each portion. Scatter over the chilli, spring onion and coriander. Serve with extra lime wedges for squeezing over.

Tip: In a hurry? Swap the ginger and garlic paste, lemongrass paste and turmeric in Step 1 with 2 x 180g sachets Tesco Laksa Sauce and just add 1 tin of coconut milk with 500ml of boiling water.
