The package is by Prima Taste, and this is the definition they have for Laksa: “a blend of fresh spice and herbs featuring rice noodles typically topped with seafood in an aromatic coconut-flavoured soup“. I heard from Rae that Laksa comes in a million different varieties. Some contain coconut milk, some don’t, some use red meat as toppings, some use seafood instead…etc, the list goes on. The version we made was called Singapore Laksa. I have never attempted to make Laksa at home before so I was super excited!
Because I didn’t have any rice noodles on hand, we boiled some Shanghai noodles instead. They actually worked pretty well with the Laksa! As you can see, we chopped up some parsley and green onion for garnish. We also had some fried onions (omg YUM!) so we also added that into our Laksa as well. 😛
This was such a success! I couldn’t believe premade Laksa mix could taste so good! If I had known this earlier, I wouldn’t have needed to order this outside because I find some places don’t even make them that well. 😛
