Coconut Seafood Laksa with Noodles

Coconut Seafood Laksa with Noodles

Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup found in Singapore and Malaysia. Our Thai Massaman blend works very well as a base for this delicious soup, which usually uses a red curry paste.
Use seafood, firm fleshed fish and or chicken, even boiled eggs to make this soup. Vegetables such as green beans, aubergine, pumpkin, beansprouts work extremely well alongside thin rice noodles. Fresh herbs are very important for giving the Laksa its unique flavour. Use coriander, mint and/or thai basil.
