4 Secrets to Making a Delicious, Quick and Easy Laksa

4 Secrets to Making a Delicious, Quick and Easy Laksa

Laksa is a savoury fusion of Chinese and Malaysian cuisine but it's a favourite among cooks across the globe. This delicious soup is packed with fresh flavour and a little bit of heat that's perfect for a cosy evening on the couch. The best thing is, with a few tips and tricks, you barely have to lift a finger to make it. Here are a few tips for making a delicious laksa without the fuss.


Secret 1: Laksa Paste

Laksa can be made from scratch with local ingredients, which can take hours and often doesn't taste as good as it should for all the effort. Save yourself the heartache of spending hours in the kitchen, by simply using a high quality laksa paste. Remember - it's not cheating if it tastes just as good!

Secret 2: Super Fresh Ingredients

The addition of a few strategically selected fresh ingredients can give your soup an authentic, full flavour with minimal effort.

The distinct citrus flavour of kaffir lime leaves will add a lively kick to your laksa, giving it that fresh tang that will weave into the dish, making it taste like it was made in the heart of South East Asia.

Curry leaves are another secret ingredient that can bring out a unique, aromatic flavour that is impossible to replicate.  The leaves also smell amazing and are rich in essential oils. You can boost their flavour level by heating the leaves in butter before adding to your laksa.

Secret 3: Prawns

Prawns are to laksa, what salt is to pepper. Their firm, crisp texture and clean flavour complements the soup perfectly and they only take a matter of minutes to prepare! What's not to love?

Secret 4: Soy sauce

Adding a tablespoon of soy sauce to your laksa can make all the difference. To vary the balance of flavours even more, try adding a dash of lime juice too.

Create your own bowl of steaming hot, aromatic laksa with our laksa spice paste, your new secret weapon in the kitchen.
