Add the tofu cubes and deep-fry for 2-3 minutes, until crisp and golden-brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain onto kitchen paper.
Heat the remaining one tablespoon of oil in a clean frying pan over a medium heat. Add the mushrooms and fry for three minutes, or until softened.
Add the mushrooms to the sauce.
Add the fried tofu and noodles to the sauce and stir well to combine.
To serve, spoon to the curry into serving bowls and garnish each with fresh coriander leaves and lime wedges to taste.
