Sarawak laksa originates from the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo. It is certainly the most popular dish when you mention the Hornbill state. A trip to Sarawak is never complete without indulging in a bowl of this spicy and flavourful soup base noodle which looks like curry. It however does not taste the same as normal curry. It has a chicken and prawn broth base of sambal belacan,tamarind,garlic, galangal, lemongrass and coconut milk, traditionally topped with omelette strips, chicken strips and prawns. However, I have chosen to use not only rice vermicelli but also yellow noodles together with bean sprouts, fried tofu as well as chicken pieces instead of chicken strips. Also a topping of a generous spread of fresh mint leaves as well as a tinge of lime make this Sarawak laksa ever so refreshing and delicious.

Ingredients For Fried Rice:

  2. Separately, boil another 1.5 litre of water in another stock pot. Upon boiling, add 1/2 teaspoon salt and the half chicken. Boil on medium heat till chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the chicken from the stock, cut into small pieces and set aside.
  4. Then add in the sarawak laksa paste into the chicken stock.
  5. Mix the paste into the stock.
  6. Add in the prawn stock.
  7. Using medium to high heat, boil the chicken and prawn stock for at least 30 minutes.
  8. Then turn off heat and sieve the stock using a strainer by pouring the stock into another stock pot to remove the spice.
  9. Bring the stock (now the laksa soup) to a boil again.
  10. Then add in the coconut milk gradually while stirring. Lastly add salt and sugar to taste. And we’re done!
  11. Using freshly boiled water, blanche the bean sprouts for 1 minute, drain and set aside.
  12. Next, rinse KETO SLIM Konjac Carrot Noodles with clean water. Drain and set aside.
  13. Lastly, blanch some fried tofu in the boiling water, to remove excess oil and then drain well.
  14. Put the drained tofu into the laksa soup.
  15. To serve, place blanched noodles and rice vermicelli into a bowl. Then add bread sprouts, chicken pieces and prawns
  16. Pour the laksa soup over the noodles and ingredients in the bowl. Top with some fresh mint leaves and squeeze lime juice (optional) over the soup before serving.



For a healthier option:

 Substitute coconut milk with evaporated milk or low fat milk.
Scoop away the oil before you use the broth. Leave the broth in refrigerator for about 2 hours and scoop the red oil that has solidified.
