I tried this last night for the first time. I liked the outcome but felt it was missing was – I forgot the fish sauce and that is definitely needed. Will definitely try this again.

Great recipe, never fails, I add some variations like tofu, fried eggplant and both thin and thick noodles but the basics are fantastic Laksa flavour and so easy in the slow cooker. I have been telling everyone about this recipe. Thanks!
