(Recipe for 4 persons)

500 grams of fish fillet
Spice ingredients for the broth
2 litres of water
1 heap tablespoon of chili powder
1 tablespoon of minced lemon grass
1 tsp of blue ginger (minced)

Many thanks for the recipe. I have been trying to find the type of rice noodles/laksa noodles as show in your picture. What is the exact name of this noodle and where to find/buy them?

Thank you.

many thanks for the recipe, just one question — here in New Zealand, tamarind comes in packets of paste. How much is right for this recipe?
