  2. Add the fish sauce and a little seasoning. Toss in the noodles and cook for a further 3-4 mins until softening. Squeeze in the lime juice, add the prawns and cook through until warm, about 2-3 mins. Scatter over some of the coriander.
  3. Serve in bowls with the remaining coriander and lime wedges on top for squeezing over, and decorate it with lemon wedge and mint leaves.
  4. one of my personnel favorite, its a complete meal in its own, enjoy it with your family and friends, a meal full of energy and proteins.

Please Note

When you are adding the fish sauce then be careful while adding the seasoning, basically fish sauce is the only seasoning for curried Laksa.
