Singapore Curry Laksa


My pot of Singapore curry laksa with fried tofu puffs (tau fu pok). The difference between a Singapore laksa and Malaysia laksa is Singapore laksa has dried shrimps in it. Both are coconut based curry made with grinded spices and chillies. If you think I made it from scratch, you are dead wrong. Hahaha... Come on, with the convenient of premix paste available which taste about the same or better than the home cook one, why should I trouble myself? Furthermore, this ready made paste is ready in 5 minutes. This time I used the Dancing Chef's Singapore Curry Laksa paste which is much cheaper than the other brand.



I served mine with fried tofu puffs, fried fish balls, fish balls, tofu fish cakes and bean sprouts. Top it with my homemade chili in oil.



Wow, my chili is so spicy! A yummy bowl of curry laksa is ready for dinner. Of course, you can add shrimps, chicken slices and hard boiled egg if you want to.

I would love to share this dish with Presto Pasta Night . Presto Pasta Night was created by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast. This week host is The Food Hunter's Guide to Cuisine. Please hop over on Friday to see the round up.

i've never had singapore curry laska... when i was in singapore, what was famous was their specialty chicken (with their dipping sauces?).

Leesie said...

Mmmm...looks and sounds delicious. I just found your blog and I love it already. What would be great is if you could share some of the recipes for the items you added to your curry laksa ;o)

Beachlover said...

sock peng said...

i think penang curry also 90% same like Singapore curry laksa

Little Corner of Mine said...

Yeah Ruth, a little help is all good. :)

Yes Tigerfish, hor jiak!

Hakka House, I used Guilin rice vermicelli (thick).

No problem Claire, yup it's spicy!

Oh Pearl, you had the Hainanese chicken with dipping sauce. Next time you should Singapore curry laksa, mee siam and Hokkein mee, they did it different from Malaysia.

Thanks Leesie, come back often ya! Oh the items I added to my laksa were all premade and came frozen, just thaw and briefly cooked in soup before serving. Easy dinner!

You are welcome Beachlover. ;) This Dancing Chef tasted very good too that's why I bought this for half the price. Of course it didn't come with laksa leaves, sambal and coconut powder but yield more servings.

Really Sock Peng? I think I never have Penang curry laksa before. I always pick Penang assam laksa when given a choice. :P
