    Loved this! Beautiful flavours and so easy. I cooked it for 2 hours on high as I didn’t have 5 hours spare. I did go mad with the noodles as I thought there wasn’t enough so next time I’ll go easy!

    Oh my such a great tasting Laksa. I only put 1/2 the noodles in tonight as we will be reheating it for tomorrow night.
