Flavour Local Noodles Dish Laksa

Flavour Local Noodles Dish Laksa is inspired by the Peranakans (Straits Chinese).

Laksa it has a spicy soup stock, fried with Spice Paste, flavoured with coconut milk and dried shrimp.

The soup was incredibly aromatic. There are lots of oomph from savoury dried shrimp, which gave lots of flavours to the soup, and a touch of coconut milk such that it was gently creamy, but remained light enough to slurp it all down.And is topped with ingredients like cockles, prawns tau pok (deep fried bean curd), fishcake and thick rice vermicelli.

In addition, Chilli lovers could make it spicier by mixing in sambal Chilli.

In conclusion our lovely homeland there are at least two versions.

Its defining characteristic is the noodles:

Thick rice noodles cut into shorter pieces that can be easily slurped up with a spoon in a soupy gravy

Another is noodles are uncut, and the soup is more like a coconut curry base, thick broth.
