Laksa nyonya

Laksa is my favourite either nyonya or johor.Its easy to do when you have all the ingredients in hand.

Things you need to blend or grind

big onions
buah keras
serbuk kunyit
cili boh

udang kering

I use 2 packets of kara santan so the gravy will be thick.

Tumis the grinded ingredients with a bit of oil sampai pecah minyak add in coconut milk and let it boil for a while before adding 4 bowls of water (or suit yourself) try not to make it too watery.

When its boiling add the taupok and switch off the fire....don't want the taupok to overcook as it will get too soft.

Add salt to taste.

You'll need laksa mee and taugeh .... wash and scald with boiling water and drain.

Garnish with boiled eggs,fish cake,prawns and daun kesum/laksa leaves.

a spoonful of cili to make it hotter ..... my cili is just of cili boh fried with oil and a pinch of salt.

A bowl of nyonya laksa .... just the right texture and gravy ... so sedap kan?

till my nest recipe......
