Singapore Laksa



My second time making (and eating laksa) at home. I used ready made laksa paste from Asian Home Gourmet. This instant paste was alright, but I am sure there are better ones. I had to add quite some other condiments myself (such as oyster sauce, fish sauce, a bit of sugar, chili paste, etc.) to make the laksa broth 'tastier'.



However, this dish is an alternative for a busy day when you don't have that much time to spare. To make my laksa less plain, I added some toppings: boiled prawns, salted duck eggs, corns and wontons (From time to time I like to make a large batch of wontons or dumplings and then freeze them - frozen dumplings can be very handy when you want to eat something delicious, yet easy to prepare).


Garnish with chopped green onions and sliced chilies.

  26. I wonder what is the different between Singapore Laksa and Malaysian Laksa? I've not see this brand selling in our Asian Supermarket.

  27. I always use those spice packets too!! They are great -- man I have never tried laksa...I feel embarassed to admit that. Maybe I will take this recipe as a sign to change that fact :)
