the susan version (the original recipe wanted pork but i had prawns that needed cooking)

put some water for the noodles on to boil
wash your hands
cut the heads and peel the legs/shell off some raw prawns (and try not to gag)
put the prawn massacre in a freezer bag. put that in another freezer bag. put the bag in the freezer until next time you take the bin out.
wash your hands again, twice
toss the prawns in a bowl with a slurp of sesame oil, a blob of chiliinabottle and some soy sauce and let them absorb all the lovely flavours while you do the next steps
when the water has been boiling madly for a while, find you mobile phone and set the timer for six minutes
put the egg noodles in
heat the frypan but watch it this time so that it does not overheat
chop the stems off a bunch of broccolini (not sure how this translates if you don't have it where you live. regular broccoli would do fine)
put the prawns in the frypan and turn up the heat because you were too cautious with the initial heat
get another bowl and put in some more sesame oil, chiliinabottle & soy sauce.
strip the zest from a fresh lime and squeeze the juice - toss both in the bowl
when the noodles are about a minute away from done, throw the broccoli(ni) in with noodles [ bugger their idea of straining the noodles and somehow saving the water to use again for blanching the broccoli(ni) ]
stir the prawns and hand turn the ones that refuse to do so when you try to flick them with the spatula
drain the noodles/broccoli(ni)
put noodles/green stuff in the bowl with the lime mixture
swear because the bowl is too small
get a bigger bowl and transfer the lot
wipe your finger over the bottom of the bowl to make sure it tastes ok - yum
toss it all madly
throw in the prawns
toss a bit more
put enough for your dinner in the bowl that was too small to hold the lot

before washing the dishes, pick out and eat some bits of broccolini out of the leftovers then put the rest away for lunch tomorrow :)

1 tsp Ground turmeric and Curry Powder
1 cup Roughly chopped onion
4 tbsp Any cooking oil
Fresh coriander leaves
2 tsp Fresh coriander leaves
5 cloves Crushed garlic
1tsp Paprika Powder
1 tsp Red chili(seeded and finely chopped)
Pinch of ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp Finely chopped fresh ginger
5 tbsp Any cooking oil

Peel the prawns, leaving the tails intact. Toss the prawns with the turmeric and curry powder. Place the onion, garlic in a food processor and process until a paste is smooth.

Heat the oil in a deep-sided frying pan.Add the spicy paste and stir them into the oil and cook over low heat for 12 minutes. If the mixture starts to burn, add a small cup of water.

When the paste is cooked, it should be a golden brown color and will have oil around the edges.
Stir the prawn and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the prawns are cooked.
Stir in the coriander, season with salt and serve with rice.
