Malaysian Nyonya Curry Laksa At Home Step By Step

  1. Prepare A. Soaked noodle in boiling water for few seconds and drain. Use both vermicelli and yellow noodles or use only one. Boil chicken thighs with garlic and enough water to cover the flesh. Once boil, take out the chicken, drain and cut. Put aside. Soak dried prawn for 5 mins, drain and dry-blend. Keep aside. Blanch fish cakes. Keep aside.
  2. Blend all ingredients in B with a bit of water to make laksa paste. Avoid using lot of water.
  3. Heat wok. Add 7 tbsp of oil. Add ingredient B (laksa paste). Add tumeric powder. Fry until fragrant and oil separate from the paste. Add ground dried prawn. Add meat curry paste, stir and fry until oil separate from the paste.
  4. Add chicken stock. Note: if you have prawn heads, use them to make laksa broth by boiling them. 1 bowl of prawn head + 1 bowl of water. Once boiled, blend the whole thing, then strain to get enough broth. Use this in place of chicken stock. I use both stocks in this recipe. Let this simmer.
  5. Then, Add cut chicken, simmer to cook the chicken. Pour thin or light coconut milk. Bring to boil. Add vietnamese mint/vietnamese corriander/laksa leaves. Add fish balls. Let simmer.
  6. Season with chicken stock granules/powder. Taste and add salt if necessary. Now Add coconut cream. Stir and simmer before switching off the heat.
