Finally we have the Laksa made 100% from scratch at home! You must have seen the Laksa recipe earlier on break&binge using the paste, but this time the paste is also vmade at home. And can totally tell you that all kinds of taste buds would love it!

Ingredients:

Procedure:

  1. Blend all the ingredients under laksa paste nicely and then cook this paste until a nice smell starts to come
