Stir Fry Laksa Noodles


Laksa is a popular and flavoursome traditional noodle soup dish originating from Southeast Asia, more preciously from Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. It’s renowned for its rich and fragrant broth, typically made using a blend of spices and coconut milk, often combined with seafood or different meats. In this recipe, we turned this humble noodle soup into a very easy to recreate stir fry noodle dish. We made sure to respect the ingredients and flavours of the original dish, and the final result is truly mouthwatering!
