- Cook noodles in boiling, salted water for 2 to 3 minutes, or according to packet instructions, until just tender. Drain well.
- Heat a saucepan, add laksa or curry paste and cook for 30 seconds to release flavours.

- Cut pork into thick strips. Heat a wok or nonstick frying pan, add a little oil and stir-fry pork strips to brown all over.
- Remove to one side. Add mushrooms, ginger, spring onions and broccoli to the pan and stir-fry over a high heat for 3 to 4 minutes to brown.
- Return pork to the pan and add soy sauce. Toss and stir-fry to coat all ingredients in soy sauce.
- Divide noodles between serving bowls, then pour over hot coconut curry mixture.
- Spoon stir-fry pork mixture on top and serve with lime wedges on the side to squeeze over.
