I can cook authentic Sarawak Laksa too!!

One day when I’m suddenly craving for Sarawak it's time to cook some.

Actually it’s very simple to cook Sarawak Laksa. The secret is in the soup. In the old days, if you wanted to cook Sarawak Laksa, first you had to grind herbs and spices then cook over a slow fire, stirring constantly which time consuming and tiring.

Now no more with ready made Sarawak Laksa Paste. BTW, I'm using "Cap Burung Helang" brand which I bought from Sarawak. Not sure whether it selling here.

Sarawak Laksa paste Cap Burung Helang
RM5.30 for 300gm

First let's cook the soup first ;)

Boil 2 liters of water in a stock pot
150gm = 1 liter of water

300gm so 2 liters

Add Sarawak Laksa paste and let it boil at
to high heat for at least 30 minutes.

then filter it to remove the spice from the stock.

throw away the paste

Bring the laksa soup to boil again

coconut milk

add in coconut milk

and stir it
Don't forget to add some salt for the taste ;)

Now the soup is ready!

Now let's prepare the ingredients.

Bee Hoon (rice vermicelli)
choose a bit thicker type

pre-soaked bee hoon

cook the pre-soaked bee hoon in boiling water.
Drain and set aside.

Boil the chicken till cooked

let it cool first then remove chicken meat
from bones
and shred the meat

Boil the prawns till cooked

Remove head and shell from prawn and clean it as well

Place shredded chicken meat and prawns aside

Beat 2 eggs

fry them thinly on a frying pan

Cut into strips just like in the picture

place it together with the shredded meat and prawns

For decoration I prepare an antique bowl.
Barulah ada feel!

cool leh...

To serve, place cooked bee hoon on a bowl.

Add shredded chicken, prawns and egg strips
Opps... I didn't add beansprouts, but it's recommended ;)

pour the laksa soup over the ingredients

Lastly must have!!!
My favorite, sambal belacan

baru lah ada ummph...

Ready to be served

Additional decoration, Hello Kitty my bowl hugger
Cute right?

Ah Tan say it tastes good

Good luck trying!!
