  1. Step 1

    Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the laksa paste, ginger and turmeric and cook, stirring, for 1 min or until aromatic. Add the stock and bring to a simmer, then add the chicken and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, turning occasionally, for 10 mins or until the chicken is cooked through. Use tongs to transfer the chicken to a heatproof bowl. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, add the pumpkin to the laksa mixture. Cook for 10 mins or until pumpkin is tender. Place the noodles in a large heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water. Set aside for 5 mins to soak. Drain and divide among serving bowls. Use 2 forks to coarsely shred the chicken.
  3. Step 3

    Add the coconut milk, lime juice, fish sauce and sugar to the laksa mixture. Cook for 5 mins or until heated through. Ladle the soup over the noodles. Top with shredded chicken, spring onion, chilli, coriander and mint.
