Real FactsEdit

Curry Laksa is a coconut-based curry soup and one of the noodle dishes which originated from Southeast Asia. The primary ingredients for most versions of curry laksa include bean curd puffs and seafoods such as fish sticks, shrimps and cockles. Laksa is commonly served with a spoonful of sambal chilli paste and garnished with Vietnamese coriander, also known as laksa leaf, (also known in Malay as daun kesum). In its Penang counterpart however, it is often known as Curry Mee, due to the different kind of noodles used (yellow noodles or bihun, as opposed to the thick white laksa noodles). Additionally, the dish uses congealed pork blood, a delicacy to the Malaysian Chinese community. The term "curry laksa" is more commonly used in cities like Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, and it is popular in Singapore and Malaysia, as are Laksa yong tau foo, lobster laksa, and even plain laksa, with just noodles and gravy. These variants of curry laksa includes:

  • Laksa Lemak: Also known as Laksa Nyonya, this type of laksa rich with coconut gravy. It is a culinary description in the Malay language which specifically refers to the presence of coconut milk which adds a distinctive richness to a dish. As the name implies, it is made with a rich, slightly sweet and strongly spiced coconut gravy. This laksa is usually made with a fish-based gravy (with vegetarian food stalls omitting fish) and is heavily influenced by Thai Laksa, (Thailand counterpart, notably the Pattani Province), perhaps to the point that one could say they are one and the same.
    • Katong Laksa: Also known as Laksa Katong, this laksa is one of the variant of laksa lemak from the Katong area of Singapore. Contrast to any laksa the noodles are normally cut up into smaller pieces so that the entire dish can be eaten with a spoon alone, without chopsticks or a fork. Interestingly, Katong laksa is a strong contender for the heavily competed title of Singapore's national dish.
  • Laksam: Delicacy from Northeastern Malaysian states, such as Kelantan, Terengganu and Kedah, this laksa is made with very thick flat white rice flour noodles in a rich, full-bodied white gravy of boiled fish and coconut milk. Though usually made of fish meat, it is sometimes made with other fish such as eels. The Laksam is traditionally eaten with hands instead of utensils due to the gravy's thick consistency.[1]

TriviaEdit

  • Contrast of the Curry Laksa ever known in Southeast Asia (particularly Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore), Nao's dish is much more similar to Asam Laksa.
