Laksa is spicy, fragrant noodle soup found across Southeast Asia. Our recipe doesn't shy away from strong, authentic flavors while also being easy to make.

- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper (we used white pepper, but you can also use black pepper), and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
- While the chicken is cooking, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large saucepan or medium pot over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add the minced lemongrass and chilies, and cook for 3 minutes.
- Add the laksa paste and brown sugar. Fry for another 3 minutes, letting all the flavors meld together. Add the chicken stock, coconut milk, and fish sauce. Bring to a boil. Add the soy puffs, cover, and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, rinse the noodles in warm water (for cooked hokkien noodles or rice vermicelli) or prepare according to package instructions (for fresh or dried wheat noodles). Distribute among four large noodle soup bowls.
- Shred the cooked chicken and skin and distribute among the bowls. Pour any juices from the roasting pan into the broth. (You can even use a little bit of warm water to scrape any lingering tasty bits off the parchment paper).
- Season the broth with lime juice and more fish sauce to taste, until your broth has reached your desired levels of saltiness/sourness. If you would rather not use fish sauce as your salting agent (it can be quite pungent to some palates), season with salt instead.
- Meanwhile, toss the thinly sliced shallots in flour until they're lightly coated. In a cast iron pan, heat an additional 2 tablespoons oil. Fry the shallots until crispy and set aside.
- Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and sear them in the same oil you used to cook the shallots, just until they're cooked through.
- To assemble the laksa, pour the broth over the noodles and chicken, and add a couple pieces of soy puff to each. Top with the cooked shrimp, bean sprouts, cilantro, and fried shallots. Serve with extra lime wedges, and enjoy!

LAKSA NOODLE SOUP
Recipe video above. This is a recipe for a real Malaysian restaurant quality laksa made by sprucing up store bought laksa paste! You can't just dump store bought laksa paste into coconut broth! The key is to freshen up the paste by sautéing it with garlic, ginger, chilli and lemongrass. Makes a world of difference! This makes 2 large bowls. Because large is the only way to go with Laksa!

- Add the fish, ginger, tamarind apple, and a teaspoon of salt into a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes, until the fish is cooked through. Turn off the heat, then take out the fish and reserve the cooking water.
- Debone the fish and weigh the meat (you should get about 200 g). Put the heads and the bones into a blender, add the cooking water, and blend. After straining the mixture, reserve the liquid and discards the solids.
- Add the strained liquid into a clean blender jug. Put the fish meat in, then blend until smooth.
- For the gravy, soak the dried chilies in hot water for about 15 minutes, until softened. Rinse and remove the majority of the seeds. In a blender, blend the softened chilies, shallots, shrimp paste, and 75 ml of water.
- Pour the chili mixture into a large saucepan, add 300 ml of water and slices of tamarind apple, daun kesum, and ginger. Season with salt and sugar, then bring to a boil. After simmering for approximately 10 minutes over a low flame, add the blended fish, then simmer for 10 more minutes. Add some more seasonings, if needed, and remove from the heat.
- Cook the noodles according to the package directions, then strain. Slice, then nicely arrange the garnishes on a serving platter.
- When ready to serve, reheat the gravy. Add some noodles into shallow soup bowls and cover them with hot gravy. Garnish with the prepared ingredients and serve at once.

I spent a considerable number of years an Asian expatriate in the Western world, mostly as a student. Back when I was in boarding school in Australia, one of the things I missed the most were the steamy dishes from back home served in some spicy fragrant gravy. On Saturdays my friends and I would walk down to Chinatown and order a large bowl of laksa. However, the chef inside me pushed me to come up with my own version of the dish. Entertain your tastebuds with the following recipe!

- Boil chicken and/or seafood to make stock. If you're using tofu, then deep-fry tofu. Drain.
- Make laksa paste. Spices are best ground on the stone mortar and pestle to form laksa paste. It is best to start working from the coriander seeds and add one ingredient at a time once the spices form a smooth paste. Add dashes of salt to make the tougher ingredients (e.g. chili, lemongrass, garlic) easier to grind. If you don't have stone, you can also use the food processor. If possible, avoid adding water to the laksa paste.
- Heat enough oil in a saucepan to cover laksa paste. Stir-fry laksa paste, basil leaves, and knotted lemongrass till fragrant then add chicken/seafood/tofu.
- Add stock and slowly bring to boil over low heat.
- Add coconut milk, stir, and simmer.
- Boil noodles and drain. Add sesame oil and set aside.
- Serve immediately with noodles and garnish.
