Laksa Lodeh – Eat What Tonight
Happened to see this recipe from the Dancing Chef cooking paste and decide to attempt it. The initial recipe was a Tempeh Laksa Lodeh, however I am not a fan of Tempeh so I had it conveniently modified to a Laksa Lodeh instead. And the pictures look very much like a curry vegetables or Lontong dish which I really liked, so I decided to cook it and see if they do taste similar.
Though it might not look impressive but surprisingly it was very good ! It’s more fragrant than Lontong and had a bit more punch than the usual curry vegetables. And I manage to polish up the rice just with this dish alone, making it quite a wholesome meatless meal for once again.
There was a good variety of cabbage, carrots, french beans and fried beancurd added to the Laksa Lodeh, basically utilizing whatever I could garner from the fridge. I finished the cooking of the dish with a pinch of grind toasted dried shrimps which I reckon made it extra aromatic.
Not sure if it works well with other brands of Laksa paste though, but it sure does with the Dancing Chef paste for this time. And for the month of August 2019, Dancing Chef will be having a promotion at all major supermarkets with the 100g paste going at 2 for $5 (usual price : $2.85 each).
So here’s to sharing my yummy Laksa Lodeh recipe ! Have a great TGIF eve !!
