Ingredients

  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Malaysian Laksa Curry 
  • Handful of greens, like bok choy, green beans or broccoli
  • 80g wide rice noodles or egg noodles, cooked as per packet instructions
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 x chicken thigh fillets, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 rounded tsp. tomato purée
  • 120 ml chicken stock
  • 60g beansprouts
Sambal:
  • 40g fresh fat red chillies, (optional to remove seeds)
  • 60g red pepper
  • 30g fresh garlic
  • 5g fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
Optional garnishes: Fresh coriander and lime wedges. You could also add a soft-boiled egg - Bring a small pan of water to the boil, gently lower in an egg and cook for 6 ½ minutes. Drain and run under cold water then peel and halve.

Method

  1. Make the sambal by blending together all ingredients, apart from the oil, with a little water to help. Heat the oil in a small pan, add in the blended ingredients, bring to a gentle simmer and cook gently for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season well, taste. If it tastes harmonious, it is cooked, if it tastes harsh or raw, cook for a little longer, adding water at any point if the pan looks like it is drying out.  
  2. Meanwhile, blanch the greens in a pan of boiling water, removing with a slotted spoon once tender. Then, in the same water cook the noodles according to packaging instructions. Drain and place the noodles into two serving bowls with the veg on the side. 
  3. Heat the 1 tbsp. oil in a pan, add the red chilli from the smallest sachet and cook for 10 seconds. Then add the chicken and cook until golden on all sides, around 5-6 minutes.
  4. Add the laksa paste and tomato purée. Stir through before adding the coconut milk and stock. Bring to a simmer. Simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through, another 5-6 minutes or so.
  5. Add the beansprouts and bring back to a simmer. Spoon the laksa into the bowls. Add a spoonful of sambal to the bowl if you would like the heat and garnish as you like.
