3 Simmer soup

Heat a pan or soup pot with a drizzle of oil over a medium heat. Once hot, add the red curry paste (spicy!), curry powder, garlic, ginger, shallots and lemon grass and cook for 2 min. After 2 min, reduce the heat to medium-low and add the coconut milk, water, sweet chilli sauce (spicy!), fish sauce and half of the soy sauce. Simmer for 10-12 min.

4 Prep tofu

Meanwhile, drain the tofu. Chop it into bite-size cubes. Add the remaining soy sauce and corn starch to two separate bowls. First, turn the tofu cubes in the soy sauce, then turn it in the corn starch.

5 Fry tofu

Heat a pan over a medium-high heat with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, add the tofu and fry the first side for 4-5 min until crispy. Don't move the tofu around in the pan. Flip and fry the second side for 4-5 min further or until golden brown. Transfer the tofu to a piece of kitchen paper.

6 Fry prawns

Return the pan to a high heat with a drizzle of oil. Fry the prawns for 2-3 min until cooked through. Divide the carrot, zucchini and bean sprouts among deep bowls. Ladle the laksa over the top. Top with the fried tofu, prawns, halved eggs, fresh coriander leaves, fried onion, peanuts and red chilli slices (spicy!). Finish with a squeeze of lime juice.
