Heat the groundnut oil in a large casserole dish over a moderate heat until hot.

Sweat the shallot for 2-3 minutes then add the garlic, chilli, star anise and ginger and continue to sweat for 2-3 minutes until soft. Stir in the chilli paste, then add the chicken stock and water.

Bring the broth to a simmer, then add the pork and noodles and simmer for 12-14 minutes until the noodles are soft and the pork is cooked.

Stir in the rice and adjust the seasoning with the fish sauce, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil. Ladle into soup bowls and serve immediately.
