263. Laksa Sarawak

Today I made 'Laksa Sarawak' for lunch. I did not cook anything else.



It is pretty simple to make as long as I assemble the ingredients before I serve the laksa. The only thing is, it takes time to prepare the ingredients :p

Actually Laksa Sarawak is a unique Sarawakian breakfast dish of rice vermicelli in a fragrant soup, topped with juicy prawns, tender chicken slices, bean sprouts and boiled eggs or omelette. It is served with a squeeze of lime and a generous dollop of fiery 'Sambal Belacan'(grounded belacan and chillies) on top of it.

300 grams laksa paste
2 litres chicken stock
1 packet of cocolin santan
400 grams thick vermicelli noodles

Laksa Paste or Sambal Laksa


Cocolin Santan


Cooked Vermicelli Noodles



Toppings

50 grams beansprouts, blanched
100 grams chicken breast fillet, cooked and shredded
1 kilo prawns, shelled and blanched
4 pieces of 'Tauhu Cakes' fried and slices

Blanched Bean Sprouts


Cooked and Shredded Chicken Breast Fillet


Prawns, shelled and blanched


'Tauhu Cakes' fried and sliced



Garnish

5-8 eggs cooked and shelled
A couple stalks of 'Daun Sup' chopped or sliced
4 limes, halved

Boiled Eggs, shelled and halved


'Daun Sup', sliced


Limes




For the gravy, boil the 'Sambal Laksa' paste in the chicken stock for 20 minutes. Add the coconut milk and stir until well mixed.
Season to taste with salt and ajinomoto and a little bit of sugar(optional).


Soak the dried vermicelli in a pot of hot water.
As soon as soft, place noodles in a sieve to dry.
Scoop some of the noodles in a bowl.

Add the toppings.
Ladle hot laksa gravy over.

Garnish with the boiled egg, daun sup, lime halves and sambal belacan.

'Sambal Belacan'



Laksa Sarawak is a dish most craved by Sarawakians who are abroad and those who have had a taste of the uniqueness of Laksa Sarawak will always be back for more.

Cheerio.

Mak Isah. Lama tak makan laksa Sarawak. Yummy!! I first tasted LS a year ago. I ada kawan from Sarawak buka restoran di bangi but the wife is a Johorian. Every year during raya, I tolong jual kek lapis sarawak dia.Mak Isah may I know paste yg sedap brand ape?

Puan Isah said...

hi madam!!! you really made my day la with this laksa post! sedap nye.. nak cari laksa la later! i have a post on laksa too, my very own recipe.. hehehe.. :)

p/s mak isah, can i suggest if u readjust your settings of your camera when u take a picture? do u have macro (a small flower symboled button) on your digital camera? if you would want a clearer picture when u take close range pictures, u can click that button. and click the snap button halfway and adjust distance, and when u see the picture is clear, click the snap button all at once. Im sorry if had intrude. Its just my opinion.. :)

Puan Isah said...

Hi sweetie

hish tak payah apologise mira dear, mak isah suka kalo opinion yang constuctive. Tapi tunggu la mak isah kumpul duit memang nak benar ingin beli satu digital camera ni...nak belajar sikit2 pasal photography :P

Salam Isah
Terlupa, rasanya saya tak pernah terjumpa laksa Sarawak di sekitar sini. Apa lagi merasanya. Dgn adanya resepi Isah tu mungkin boleh cuba sendiri nanti. Pasti sedap tu.

Puan Isah said...

Salam Temuk
Iye? Temuk mesti cuba! Senang je buat kuah nye...asal ada 'Sambal Laksa' or Laksa paste tu.

Hari Raya lepas, isah buat LS untuk open house kat rumah isah. Ramai yang suka makan LS, seronok tengok kekawan bangsa lain tak tahan pedas tapi masih jugak kata sedap bila dah makan he he...

mak isah.. patutla gamba not so clear.. u use hp camera paduhal~~ mine is a benq 8.0 megapixel, the model is DCE800. This cam is just so n so, harga pun agak murah, about 4oo+ now. but i saw the other it was for sale for 388 in boulevard. i dont recommend this camera kalau amik gamba during nights.., during the day very ok la. during nites, u have to adjust to night mode n u must have really steady hands, kalau tak memang blur habis.. videonya pun ok2 je, no so clear.. uhm.. wat else do i like bout my cam? hmm.. gamba dekat pun ok gak..and its recharge using charger, no batteries (u main cucuk n charge macam handphone je, i hate rechargable AA batteries), tapi kalau nak extra bateri kene beli la.. hehe.. wat else? oh ya, its cheap!less than 450 la now.. :) kalau nak yg hitech lagi, mahal lagi la mama isah.. :( hehe.. im just using a simple one, my mum finds it really easy to use. dia ada prob with technology, she really hates the change, really doesnt like computers, handphones sebab she's got bad eyesight.. hehe.. u know la.. mums.. :) i can recommend this camera, but at least u cari jugak la review of others, i heard sony and nikon are good too.

Puan Isah said...

Wahh..terima kasih dear mira sbb cita hal digital camera mira...pasal recharge using charger tu mmg mak isah setuju, leceh kan kalo tiap2 kali beli bateri.
So yours is a benq...sama brand laptop mak isah tu :p

Mak isah belom decide lagi apa brand nak beli...waktu ni masih survey2...
Nanti nak tengok camera mcm mira tu di boulevard eh?

Sony & Nikon mmg bagus gak..tapi harga pun melambak kan? Rasa nya mak isah don't need an expensive camera, just one that takes a good picture cukup memadai dah.

Alaa...biasa la tu..kitaorng dah berumur, mcm mak isah apa kurang nyer..degree spectacles makin meningkat tiap2 kali gi check mata he he...
