Lovely laksa! Served throughout Malaysia this curried noodle soup from episode 8 of World Kitchen is a winner in hot or cold weather.
Boil egg noodles in salted water until tender, drain and set aside. Cook vermicelli by soaking in boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In a mortar and pestle, grind paste ingredients to smooth paste.
Make shrimp oil by nipping tails off prawns and frying in 2-3 tablespoons of oil until golden. Remove shells and add the shrimp-flavoured oil to the paste.
Heat oil in large pot and fry paste until fragrant and beginning to brown. Add stock, lemongrass, chicken, and coconut milk, bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
Add prawns and simmer until they, and the chicken, are cooked though. Taste and add salt if required. Add juice of lime.
Divide noodles and vermicelli evenly into 4 bowls. Spoon chicken and prawns into each, then pour hot laksa broth over and garnish.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
