  • 1 In order to make this delicious dish, we first begin by making a paste made with chilli, shallots, garlic, ginger, coriander stalk, lemongrass and fresh turmeric. Chop them first into pieces and pound them altogether with a mortar and pestle. Make sure it becomes paste-like in consistency before adding the coriander and cumin.
  • 2 Next, get a wok or saucepan and get it nice and hot over medium low heat. Pour some vegetable oil and cook the spice paste for 10 minutes.
  • 3 Pour the Knorr Ginataang Gulay to the boiling water and whisk with a fork to combine. Carefully pour mixture into the wok with the spice paste and add the kesum leaf branches. Over high heat, bring the laksa to a boil and then turn down the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • 4 Meanwhile, soften the vermicelli noodles by boiling some water, turn it off, then soak the noodles in for 3 minutes uncovered. Drain and divide the noodles between 4 serving bowls. Top each bowl with a handful of bean sprouts.
  • 5 Add the prawns, fish balls and tofu to the laksa and cook for five more minutes. Ladle the soup into the serving bowls and sprinkle some fresh coriander leaves on top. With a light drizzle of lime on top, your Laksa is done! Give yourself a reward for this dish is fit for a king!
