80ml vegetable oil
12 large king prawns, shells removed, heads & tails reserved
3 tbsp laksa paste

Soak shrimps in 125ml hot water for 10 minutes then transfer to a food processor. Add the garlic, shallots, ginger and chilli, and process until a smooth paste forms.



Place a large saucepan over high heat. Add the oil and reserved prawn shells and fry for 2 minutes until shells turn red. Remove with a slotted spoon.

Bring another large saucepan of water to the boil. Cook the rice noodles and egg noodles, separately, for 2 minutes then transfer to a colander and rise with cold water.

Add the prawns to the laksa, turn off the heat and allow to gently poach for 2-4 minutes until cooked through.



To serve, divide the noodles, tofu puffs and prawns among bowls. Ladle over the broth and top with chicken and fried shallots.
