Lovely Laksa

Serves: 4 people


100 grams Vermicelli rice noodles

3 tablespoons Laksa paste

650 grams chicken breast cooked and shredded

400 ml coconut milk


  • In a large saucepan, combine the laksa paste and 1 tablespoon of water and stir over medium heat to release the flavour of the laksa.
  • Add the chicken and cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk and half a cup of water, gently bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for 7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, empty the vermicelli into a large bowl and cover with boiling water, leaving to sit for 5 minutes so the noodles soften. Use a fork to stir and separate.
  • Strain the noodles and add the chicken laksa. Stir to combine.

Garnish with finely sliced spring onions and fresh chilli and scatter with fresh coriander leaves
