Laksa Nyonya

Thanks to a friend and sister who willingly shared this recipe.

Even my 3rd sister (whom I must say is the official cook of our family) compliment me and she did it 3 times hehee….. Alhamdulillah, am just glad everyone loves it. The best reward for a cook is when what we cook is being appreciated by those who ate it.


Laksa Nyonya Sriberri

Ingredients based on a medium size pot.

1 kg Laksa noodles and 200 gm or more of bean sprouts – blanch and put aside separately

2-3 ikan kembong (Indian/Chubb mackerel) – boiled and blend the meat after deboning them. Put aside. Keep the fish stock to add to the gravy later.

2 small assam keping (Garcinia atroviridis)

5 pieces of taupoks (dry/fried beancurd) – cut into triangle shape

1 cucumber – skinned and sliced thinly (for garnishing)

Salt to taste

1 small bowl of chopped vietnamese mint (daun kesum) – use half for the gravy and half for garnishing.

1 small box of coconut milk (Kara brand)

enough water


Ingredients to blend together: 
15 dried chillies (soak in hot water)
3-4 onions
4 cloves garlic
3 slices of galangal (lengkuas)
2 stalks of lemongrass
an inch of belacan (shrimp paste)
1 tsp of coriander seeds
1 tsp of fennel seeds
1 tsp of cumin seeds
3 candlenuts

Add in 1 tbsp full of fish curry powder and 1 tbsp of tumeric powder to the blended paste above.


Pour oil into the pot, fry the blended ingredients till fragrant (stir often so that the paste is not stick to the pot).  Add in the vietnamese mint, keep stirring for another 5-10 mins.

Add the blended fish meat together with the fish stock. Once it has started to boil, add in the asam keping, coconut milk and water (if the gravy is too thick).  Stir well and add salt to taste and the taupoks.

Once the gravy is ready, to serve, put the laksa and beansprout into a bowl, pour the gravy and garnish it with the vietnamese mint, some thinly sliced cucumber, a tsp of sambal belacan and a few quail eggs (this is my preference, but you can also add in boiled prawns or sliced fishcake).

ok that’s all for the recipe … that was what we had for iftar just now.

Also, besides the laksa, we had the opportunity to enjoy the cookies baked by my 4th SIL.  Yummylicious hmmm 🙂


Thank you Didi, these are delicious especially the cornflakes cookies 🙂

and we also received these cookies from my 3rd sister ….

Alhamdulillah rezki 🙂


Cornflakes, suji and kuih bangkit …. Lovely 🙂
