laksa penang :)

my all time favorite! my mom loves this toooo..*missing home*
well since ikan kembung is rarely found here xkira lah seminggu ke sebulan ke kita try untuk menjala di pantai2 yang berdekatan i doubt it that we can catch this kind of fish..but knowing the fact that it isnt available does not stop the craving. not even a bit.so i settle down with 'perantau' kind of recipe in which the most important skills we need is to be able to think of alternatives..enough of me rambling..let's go straight to the recipe..

  • lettuce
  • cucumber
  • pineapple
  • onion
  • lime
  • boiled eggs
so cut all these veggie according to your preferences and put it in a plate like this :p

lime is optional since the soup/sauce is going to be a bit sour n again it's up to u..

then u need

  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 cups of tamarind juice(tamarind extract+ water-not the one for drinking purpose)
  • 2 tablespoon os chili powder,garlic,ginger,small onion(blend)
  • few green hot chili/pepper
  • 2 cups of water
  • lemon grass(optional)
blend tuna+ 1 onion and put it aside. mix chili powder and few teaspoon of water to make paste n then blend it with other ingredients mentioned above. then heat up the pot with 2 tablespoon of oil.cook the paste till it becomes kinda oily (pecah minyak) then add the tamarind juice.then add blended tuna+onion. add some water,green chilli,salt and probably sugar to taste.and lastly add some lemon grass to give it a good smell:p. cook it until it boils and the consistency is like this :)..taste it and add anything aacording to what u'd like it to taste like..more pepper for spicy food lover maybe..

then serve it with rice noodle which can easily be found in the nearest asia market or probably chinese shop :D

that's it really..easy pitzy squeezy! :D try it out guys :D
