I'm not sure which category this dish fall into - the curry family or the laksa family. Because its ingredients has combination of both, I guess that's why the creator calls it Kari Laksa. And I couldn't agree more with him sebab kari laksa ni ada rasa pedas berempah - from the use of curry powder dan masam - from the blended torch ginger bud a.k.a bunga kantan, lah :-).
I got the recipe from a newspaper cutting 2 sundays ago. The dish is a popular dish at a cafe in Batu Caves, Selayang nearby the Selayang Stadium called Cafe Suria Station. I give it a try for our lunch on Sunday and hubby loves it so much he asked me to frozen the leftover kuah kari laksa sehingga dia balik dari outstation hujung minggu ini. Beriya-iya lah nak makan dengan chopstick nak dapatkan feel kopitiam gitu. Chopstick pun cheapskate punya, setakat chopstick buluh jenis disposable.
My only problem was that sukatan bahan-bahan tu saya pun tak tau lah whether it meant untuk sukatan seorang makan or sekeluarga. The amount of chicken broth and coconut milk use indicates 1 person measurement tapi bahan-bahan agak banyak, jadi produk akhir kuahnya terlalu pekat. Saya tambah sukatan chicken broth supaya lebih soupy and adjust bahan perasa accordingly. I cannot help to feel that the kuah will taste much better kalau ganti chicken broth with air rebusan udang atau jus kulit dan kepala udang. Reason being the recipe calls for the use of serbuk kari ikan. Serbuk kari ikan and chicken broth? It should be more of serbuk kari daging with chicken broth or serbuk kari ikan pair with shrimp broth, kan? Pepandai je. Well, I always believe in - cooking is all about adjusting to suit your own palate.

When i was small
I wanted to become a doctor, but i ended up being a secretary,
When i was growing up
I wanted to study economics
but i ended up studying communication,
When a friend wish me luck & remind me to get a boyfriend as well as a degree,
I vowed to myself & her that i will come back with my degree (only),
i ended up having both my degree & a boyfriend,
When i sincerely thought that i would ended up being a spinster,
i met my prince charming at 22, who swept me away and convince me to marry him at 23!
When i plan that i would only settle down at 28,
i'm already a young mother of two little terror by then,
i never thought my best friend would become my hubby one day,
i guess God has his own plans for me
