Boiled Water for the Sauce
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 0.25 tsp salt for the noodles.
When boiling, add the noodles to the water and cook until tender, 4 mins.
Once cooked, drain in a sieve and run under cold water to stop them sticking together.
Meanwhile, boil a half-full kettle.
Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Slice widthways into pieces about 0.5cm thick.
Drain the prawns. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat.
Once hot, add the prawns, carrot and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and fry, stirring occassionally, for 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.
Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
In a jug, use a fork to mix together the peanut butter and boiled water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) until combined and smooth. Stir in the ketjap, sweet chilli and soy sauce.
Add the garlic to the pan and fry until fragrant, 1 min.
Pour in the sauce from the jug. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, 3-4 mins. Season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, cut the lime into wedges.
Stir the cooked noodles into the pan until coated in the sauce. Add a good squeeze of lime juice and stir to combine.
Taste and add more lime juice, salt or pepper if needed.
Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.
