off to penang!

Ok not off to Penang, Malaysia per se but yesterday, after jamming, the mother-in-law told us she wanna drop by our place to lepak2 while my father-in-law go do some errands and i asked if she has any cravings and she mentioned Laksa Penang.

I love Laksa Penang! Not a fan of the Laksa Johor though.
In fact, i’m not a fan of most dishes that has santan in it.

So i googled for a Laksa Penang Recipe and found a reliable one.

Now, i love Laksa Penang but nak buat Laksa Penang, walaupun senang tapi part nak kopek ikan and hancur2 kan punya lah leceh.

i took 1hr 30mins to complete the whole cooking session.
the things i do for my mother-in-law sometimes. lol

Laksa Penang Recipe Unlocked!

I swear this is a major achievement for me cos i’m not so much of a “suka masak lauk melayu”. My father always make fun of my lauk melayu.

Cos bila belum kahwin, sibuk asyik masak Pasta lah, sushi lah..
Kari, asam pedas ni semua satu benda tak tau.

Dah kahwin, pandai pulak nak belajar and the trick is to not be too anal about the measurements. Just follow your gut feeling and you’re good to go!

Anyway, this dish is awesome for you BTB yang nak jaga badan because it is healthy. It has no oil at all, no coconut cream and best of all it’s tasty.

So if you ever wanna try this, here’s the recipe.
