Here is a chance for vegetarians to have a go at the Penang Laksa Soup, an ever-popular Malaysian delicacy.
Coconut milk and vegetable stock form the base of this tasty soup, which is flavoured with a tangy and spicy paste of tamarind, chillies, lemongrass and onions.
Chunky pieces of cottage cheese and crunchy bean sprouts add more josh to this perky soup, which is characterised by the rich taste of coconut milk and the fresh aroma of lemongrass.
We have toned down the spice levels to make the soup enjoyable for everybody. Pair the Laksa Soup with Malaysian Noodles and Creamed Corn Cake for a satiating oriental meal.
