Laksa Penang - thank u my Enemy :)


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.

Laksa Penang

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.

-cook on slow fire.
-add in ginger bud, daun kesum, asam keping and salt.

-let it boil.

-meanwhile- blanch the laksa.

i mmg rindu sangat with laksa penang and so had to DIM (doitmyself) it.... since fish are so expensive in Canberra I had to use sardines instead. The taste was ok. Hubby and kids loved it. Can't wait to go back this Dec...
