Recipe's preparation

    Laksa broth
  1. Add oil to mixing bowl. Heat 1 min, 100 degrees speed 1.
  2. Add laksa paste. Sautée 5 mins, 100 degrees, speed 1.
  3. Add about 50 grams of the coconut cream, the creamiest part. Cook for 3 minutes, varoma, speed 1.
  4. Add chicken stock paste, water, the rest of the coconut cream, sugar and chilli sauce (optional). Cook 25 mins, 100 degrees, speed 1.
  5. Add chicken. Cook 10 mins, 100 degrees, reverse speed 1.
    At the end of the time, check that the chicken is cooked through. If not, extend the cooking time in this step.
  6. Before the end of the cooking time, cook noodles according to the packet instructions. I make mine by placing them in a thermoserver and covering them with boiling water, placing the lid on and leaving them to cook until ready, then drain and divide into serving bowls.
  7. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  8. Garnish with Tofu, bean sprouts and fried shallots.

    Optional extras include lime wedge, fresh coriander and sliced birds eye chilli.

    Optional: chilli laksa sauce on the side

You can also add prawns after 7 mins cooking time has passed with the chicken ste and increase time by 1 - 2 mins if they aren't cooked through (check the prawns at the end of the cook time).
You can add an additional half teaspoon of the optional chilli sauce (for an extra heat kick), lime juice in (for sour) and fish sauce (for saltiness).
Chilli sauce: see my recipe on the RC for chilli laksa sauce.
