Author: Chris
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Serves: 3-4 
Ingredients for the LAKSA PASTE (you can make more of this paste and just freeze some to use it lately).
  • 5 chilies of your choice (as hot as you want them), stemmed and seeded if you want
  • 4 red shallots (small onions), peeled and quartered
  • 2 TBSP roughly chopped ginger
  • 3 big garlic cloves
  • 3 coriander roots, cleaned really well
  • 2 large lemongrass stalks (white part only), trimmed and chopped
  • handful of cashews (or macadamia if allergic to cashews)
  • 1 TBSP coriander seeds (whole)
  • 1 TBSP cumin seeds (whole)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 TBSP turmeric (fresh or powder)
  • 4 TBSP tomato paste (totally not traditional, but I love it in this recipe)
Ingredients for the LAKSA
  • Laksa paste
  • 4 TBSP coconut oil
  • 1.5 L veggie stock
  • 1 TBSP raw sugar
  • 400 ml coconut milk (1 tin)
  • 5 Kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 TBSP soy sauce or tamari
  • Bean sprouts
  • For 1 serving, a handful each: rice laksa noodles, zucchini noodles, carrot noodles
  • coriander leaves
  • lime wedges
  • toasted sesame seeds


  1. Add coriander and cumin seeds in a small pan on low heat and slightly toast them for 1-2 minutes, careful not to burn them.
  2. Set aside and allow to cool.
  3. Once cooled, add them to a mortar and pestle and grind them finely.
  4. Add all ingredients for the laksa paste to a blender and process until you get a fine paste. Should take around a minute. Scoop into a bowl.
  5. Heat your pot and add the laksa paste with the coconut oil. Stir through and cook for 2-3 minutes until hot and fragrant.
  6. Add the veggie stock, sugar, coconut milk, lime leaves and soy sauce, give it a good stir, cover and bring to a boil.
  7. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes, covered.
  8. Meanwhile, bring another pot of water to a boil and cook your rice noodles per package instructions. When ready, drain and rinse with cold water. Place in the serving bowl.
  9. Make your zucchini and carrot noodles and place in the serving bowl too.
  10. Top with bean sprouts and when laksa is ready, pour 3-4 ladles on top of the noodles in the serving dish.
  11. Top with coriander and sesame, squeeze fresh lime and enjoy hot.
