This is one of my favorite Malaysian dishes and now I can make it at home and so can you!
Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup from Peranakan culture, which is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements found in Malaysia and Singapore. Curry laksa (in many places referred to simply as “laksa”) is a coconut-based curry soup. The main ingredients for most versions of curry laksa include tofu puffs, fish sticks, & shrimp (or chicken).
You will need:
One package of Curry Laksa Paste
available at most Asian markets
1/2 to 3/4 cup (depending on how creamy you like it)
- egg noodles and/or "mai fun" noodles
and whatever fillings you like. I used:
- fried tofu puffs
- grilled shrimp
- hard boiled eggs
- bean sprouts
- scallions for garnish
Bring to a boil the paste and 5-6 cups of water (10-15 minutes). Add in coconut milk and simmer (5 minutes). Throw all your fillings into the soup and simmer (5 more minutes).
In a seperate pot, bring your noodles to a boil. Strain and place in a bowl.
Scoop in fillings. some of the soup and serve! Serves 4-6.
