Amazing laksa soup

I needed a soup base for my hotpot and thought why not curry laksa soup. So 1 hr later I have it, my laksa soup for hotpot. Naturally this is not as thick or curried as for laksa but this soup is just so aromatic and flavoursome. Thank you Marion. 😊

Make it - You won’t be disappointed

This recipe is extremely easy to make – this is a seriously good Laksa Recipe. It’s warm, spicy & super flavourful- just add in your proteins to pimp it up – I added both chicken & prawns. It made me feel like I knew how to marry together the ingredients used in Asian Cooking to produce a brilliant dish. I can 200% recommend this recipe.. thanks Marion

Like a warm hug for my soul!

This was so simple and easy to make and took me straight back to my favourite Malaysian restaurant in the back streets of Adelaide!
