I know many of you love laksa, especially laksa penang. Same goes with me. I'm a laksa-addict. ('hantu laksa' la kiranya). Have to have laksa, every month (because it's quite impossible to eat it everyday@every week. I've posted the recipe about 'laksa kelantan' last time, so this time it's 'laksa Penang'. I've been making Penang laksa since I was small, but this time i used an authentic recipe from the Penangites herself- my enemy down under- Add. Thanks for the recipe.
1 kg laksa
1 kg fresh sardines -cleaned(ikan sardin- org kelate panggil ikan selayang-bukan sardin dlm tin tau) 5 small onions 3-4 tablespoons chilli paste 1 inch dried shrimp paste (belacan) 2 ginger bud (bunga kantan -cut into quarters) a bunch of daun kesum
-boil sardines for about 10minutes with dried tamarind slice (asam keping) and a pinch of salt -cool, reserve the water -deboned/ fleshed the fish -blend fish flesh with some of stock water until very fine. Pour into a pot. -blend the bones with the rest of the stock water.Then sift into the pot. Throw the bones away.
-blend the onions, chilli paste and belacan together. Then pour into the prepared pot.
