Chicken Curry Laksa is a noodle soup dish prepared with yellow noodles, chicken, curry puffs and boiled egg in a broth is made with special chilli paste and rich coconut milk.
In Malaysia and Singapore this is called “Laksa Lemak” also known as Nyonya Laksa, basically a type of laksa served with a rich coconut gravy, slightly sweet and strongly spiced. Traditionally the stock is made with a fish-based gravy but modern versions like this Chicken Curry Laska recipe today is prepared with chicken. Curry Laksa’s main ingredients include bean curd puffs and protein like chicken or fish, the puffs act as a sponge to absorb all of that delicious gravy. Usually yellow noodles or bee hoon is used.
Spices used on this dish usually is a ground paste of mixed turmeric, coriander, candlenut, lemongrass, galangal, garlic, shallot, and pepper which gives it that distinctive fragrance and mildly spicy flavour. It may scare those ones who are beginners in cooking or those who wants to have a quick meal, and if that is the case there are ready made pastes available in some supermarkets and mostly all Asian groceries which makes it easier for you to prepare one.
With this dish everything you need is in one bowl, protein, carbs and a bit of vegetable, it’s an all in one dish. Definitely very hearty, really flavourful and a good comfort dish.
