Laksa Lemak Nonya


Salam, hai, only now got the chance to update my blog...reached home at 2 am this morning from Kuala Lumpur...normally a 4 hours drive there it took us about 5 hours plus cause of the bad weather. It was raining very heavily throughout the journey...and we have to drive the car with the speed on a normal road!!!...yesterday's visit was purely to visit Mr Hubby's cousin who was with 'brain haemorrage', not brain tumour as what was told.. basically when we reached Hospital Besar Kuala Lumpur, the whole one and half hour was just at the hospital, after that we drive direct home, no 'singgah' (stop over) for shopping or what so ever only stop at Melaka for our late dinner that was around 10 plus...

It was quite a tiring journey...if only we can stay one night there then not so bad I guessed, but no choice cause Mr Hubby got to work today...anyway this was what I managed to prepare today..Laksa lemak Nonya, got the recipe from Che Mat's blog...Thank you dear Che mat ya..I used mee cendol or 'bai tak mee' for the noodles. First time eat and cook Nonya laksa!!!..Very Sedap!!!!...but the coconut milk(which you can substitute evaporated milk) in the gravy ish... ish... ish...just close one eye Ok!..hehehe

Method:-
  1. UNTUK KUAH LAKSA-(laksa gravy) :- Panaskan minyak dalam kuali, goreng udang kering hingga harum, masukkan bahan2 rempah kisar halus dan tumis hingga harum dan terbit minyak. Alih rempah tadi dalam bekas lain. Dalam periuk, panaskan stok udang hingga mendidih, masukkan daun kesom dan renih 10 - 15 minit. Masukkan rempah tadi, santan dan kiub ikan bilis. Masukkan bunga kantan, sos ikan dan perasakan dengan garam dan gula. Biar mendidih perlahan sambil dikacau selalu. Rasa dan jika ok boleh matikan api. - (Heat oil in a wok, fry dried shrimp till fragrant. Add in blended ingredients and saute till fragrant and oil rises up the surface. Transfer the mixture into another bowl. In a saucepan, warm up the prawns stock till boil and add in laksa leaves and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add in the sauted ingredients, coconut milk and anchovies cubes. Add in red ginger plant bud, fish sauce and salt and sugar to taste. Let it simmer on slow heat with frequent stirring. Turn off heat)
  2. UNTUK SAMBAL TUMIS(sambal ) :- Panaskan minyak dalam kuali, tumis bahan2 kisar hingga harum, masukkan cili kisar dan masak hingga cili garing.

Add in tamarind juice, add salt and msg to taste on a low heat till sambal thickens. Taste if ok turn off heat)
  3. UNTUK PENYEDIAAN LAKSA LEMAK NYONYA (to serve):- Dalam mangkuk sesuai, isi kan laksa dan tuangkan kuah secukupnya. Hias dengan ulam2man, tauhu, hirisan fishcake, belahan limau kasturi dan juga sambal tumis tadi. Hidangkan segera...(In a bowl, add in blanched laksa noodles add in laksa gravy and garnish with garnishing ingredients. Serve immediately)
CATATAN MAT GEBU :- Kalau nak buat dalam kuantiti yang sikit, rempah tu tak payah habiskan, boleh simpan dalam peti sejuk dan boleh digunakan pada masa lain. Kalau guna susu cair, masukkan susu akhir sekali dan didih kan sekejap saja, untuk mengelakkan susu berketul2...Sambal tumis tu pun kalau tak habis boleh simpan. Kot2 nak goreng nasi ke, goreng mee hoon ke, boleh lah digunakan sebagai perencah segera...(If you are making in a small quantity, you dont have to use up all the paste, you can keep some for future use. If using evaporated milk instead of coconut milk, add in last so that the gravy will not be lumpy or cuddles. The sambal you can keep for fried rice or noodles.)
