What's The Big Idea?
OK, this may not be desperately authentic, I've adapted the original recipe somewhat (and who knows how authentic the original was?!). But it is super-tasty and well worth the effort!
This is very much an "all in one" dish - meat, vegetables and noodles all end up in the same pot - you won't really need anything else to go with it.
Either the prawns or the spicy sausage could be swapped for chicken or other meats, or tofu, or other seafood, or a combination - up to you!
