I’ve been getting emails from readers requesting the Curry Laksa Recipe (which I’ve forgotten to post) :D.  So, here it is:  Enjoy!  (Note that this recipe is for 20 people… you could feed a whole army.  I do have a big family.)

“Heat 1½ cups in a deep sauce pan,”

I was wondering what am i suppose to heat 1 and a half cups of?

Was it water? or Chicken stock? or was it the oil?

I see the method for the Laksa Soup, but when do we add the rest of the ingredients? Do we have to cook any of the meat or vegetables before they go into the soup? =)

I ended up making this dish for dinner and added a few candlenuts, some galangal and real long red chillies instead of powder. I left out all seafood and fish sauce as I’m allergic to it but it still tasted fantastic!! Thanks for the recipe! =)
