Curry Laksa Mee

30.10.2010 - BRUNEI.  To make good bowl of LAKSA mee soup is actually not that difficult, but by just reading and looking at the recipe and ingredients, looks much more complicated and loads of work.

For my laksa recipe, sure gives no worries and its very easy to handle, remember the only thing that you need to cook is the LAKSA SOUP! nothing else. Follow my recipe step by step, you will find it so much easier than it sounds.

I am extremely falling in love with my super rich and thick Curry Laksa Noodle!! It was so damn good!! How could i not to cook this earlier.. it was super easy and cooking my very first Laksa with flying colours!  i think the best part is no need to fuss and busy with making laksa paste from scratch.  

Let me introduce you this paste, I used Nyonya Brand Curry Laksa Paste.  It was so good!! I won't ever change any brand for making my laksa noodle in the further not other than Nyonya brand. Love this paste. taste super good.  Please try this paste if you can get one.

I am really satisfy with my Laksa making and super satisfy with the result..

  Nyonya Brand - Curry Laksa Paste ( thumbs up!! )

Another interesting thing that i would love to share is that, LAKSA LEAVES list of names. Laksa Leaves is a kind of Herb or plant with a strong smelly leaves, used as a flavouring. that is a must in making a bowl of good Laksa or asam cooking method. In Malaysia, they called it "Daun Kesum" in malay language or probably you can see sometimes its name as "Laksa Leaves" too in english at the supermarket.

Where in Brunei supermarket, it name can be seen on the tag as "Laksa Leaves" and in Singapore or Vietnam recognized as the "Vietnamese Leaves". Just one herb has 3 different names from different countries. So don't confuse yourself, its just one type of Herb that has different name.
