JD Cooks ~ Curry Laksa

September 13, 2009

My parents were away this weekend and both of us have to cook our own dinner today. Don’t think it’s cheaper than eating out, but I get to blog about the cooking process and share it here right?

The toppings is entirely up to you be it brinjal, fish ball, chicken, char siew, well you get the point right? So for today’s meal, we opt for brinjal, chicken and egg.

The first thing that you need to do is to cook the curry paste.

Once it’s ready, you can start pouring in 1-1.5 litre of water and bring it to boil.

While cooking the soup, I start to prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Like the brinjal, where I cut it into small pieces and off to the frying pan, resulting in this…

After that, the chicken comes into the picture.

I have marinated the chicken with salt and will be steaming it, so that will take about 15-20 minutes.

So while the chicken is cooking, I also start to boil the eggs. The soup is actually ready so I put it aside.

After 15 minutes of cooking, both the chicken and egg should be ready and will look something like this.

Next comes the mee and mihun.

Grab the portion of mee plus mihun plus bean sprouts to your liking and start boiling it away. And you will have the end result, that looked like this.

It’s consider ok lar, something very easy and not too spicy. Even May shows her thumbs up!

All this can be done, when you have this…

Save you the hassle of buying any spice in the market, plus it’s only RM3.20. Till then, have fun!
