    I loved this recipe and the delicate balance of flavours. It was just the right amount of heat. I added snow peas sliced thin as I didnt have bean sprouts. I used 2 cups of chicken stock to make sure there was enough liquid. Thanks for this great recipe.

    Very tasty, but I agree that it was very thick. I added extra coconut milk for volume, but would add more stock as well next time.

  • Really yummy base recipe

    Submitted by Hotlips on 12. April 2015 - 23:09.

    Really yummy base recipe thanks. The tweaks that I did.  In the paste I put in 2 small hot red chillis & 1 big red chilli, nice & spicy. Then as suggested by previous comment I pureed the paste after the 3rd step of cooking for 8 mins with 1 min speed 9. I added an extra 165mls of coconut milk (maybe could add a bit more) & I added a LOT more lime juice & a bit more brown sugar to balance the flavours.  300 gms of chicken thigh cubes & I cooked for recommended time however I think 5 mins at 100 degrees would have been fine & then I added 1 small red capsicum,  a handful of quatered snow peas plus 16 prawns & I cooked for 2 mins at 90 degrees but the prawns were still over cooked as the liquid itself would have cooked the prawns in a couple of mins without additional cooking. So I think 1 min at 90 degrees would be heaps. I garnished also with crushed macadamias but I didn't have any bean shoots so omitted them. We loved this dish!!!

  • Arrived at a beautiful Laksa

    Submitted by Janetgodknows on 3. March 2015 - 06:09.

    Arrived at a beautiful Laksa soup, didnt have shrimp paste or macadamias so used extra fish sauce and cashews. Used 1 can of the low fat coconut milk took some out for the paste then added an extra sachet of coconut cream to the main recipe plush extra 150 mils chicken stock ... I needed more sauce to cover  ...... Didn't use noodles at all, added chopped Kale, carrot shavings, red pepper strips and small broccoli florets instead all whilst cooking the chicken, 250 grams of chicken too (a bit extra) put in extra lime juice and fish sauce to balance the flavours of the veg back.  Mine probably looked a big greener in colour. Added a few more cashews to serve and no bean sprouts because I didnt have any! ...... All gone, very yummy and many thanks for the brilliant background recipe.

    We had guests for dinner and my fussy teenagers and they all had 2 or 3 serves, thanks for sharing this awesome dish. My boys said it's just like the one they have in Sydney at China Town!

    We used kelp noodles as we are paleo.

    Submitted by Christine E on 15. July 2014 - 22:23.

    My hubby and I agree with others' comments that, though the flavour is good, it's more of a curry than a soup - there wasn't enough liquid for it to be a soup! Perhaps if we'd used 300g fresh egg noodles in place of using 200g dried which we had in the pantry, it would have been better.

    We also added extra coconut milk (another 270ml) and it improved both the taste and the amount of liquid.

    The texture also needs to be smoother.  I think I might puree the mixture after the first 15 mins of cooking.

    Submitted by Thermomix in Australia on 8. May 2014 - 13:50.

    Hi sianbradbury,

    Sorry to hear that. Was the lemongrass put into your Thermomix in large segments?

    When preparing this dish again, if at step 1, the lemongrass is still in large sharp pieces, please process it the paste at step 1 for a further 5 seconds or until the paste is much smoother.

    Submitted by Jaynnie on 26. March 2014 - 16:32.

    Very nice.

    Just used jar paste as to had some in the fridge and used coconut cream, rather than milk.

    Also added slim noodles as hubby would want the extra substance.

    Will try making own paste next time

    Very tasty Laksa! Hubby loved it and so did I. I would de-seed the chilli next time so the kids could have it too.  As someone else said, I was glad the paste was part of the recipe and didn't need to be made ahead of time.

    Submitted by Nicnud on 31. August 2013 - 20:30.

    It wasn't bad - to me it was more off a version of curry noodles instead of Laksa. The soup was too thick to be a Laksa. But the flavours were good

    If this is a Thermomix recipe why does the recipe call for 'a can of coconut milk'  The Thermie makes coconut milk in seconds : )

    This laksa was amazing. Definitely one of the best 'one-pot' dinner recipes I've found. The laksa was delicious, quick and easy and I loved that the curry paste was made in the same recipe and didn't need to be made ahead of time.

  • The flavours of this dish

    Submitted by Dionmoore on 24. May 2012 - 14:03.

    The flavours of this dish were really lovely.   However cooking times and temperature was too long and too hot and as a result my coconut milk split and so became oily and pretty awful.  I did manage to recover the dish by skimming off the fat and adding more flavour but in future, I would cook it at 90 degrees on Speed 1 for no more than 10 minutes.  Thanks for the recipe it's delicous...
