The past weekend was predicted to be filled with big storms, rain, wind, all grey and no sun. The forecast models were not entirely correct though, so we had some rain, some wind and some sun too. No one is complaining :). The temps are dropping however and the only thing I want to do is a curl up with a bowl of soup and listen to some holiday theme novels (audio books).
This Laksa curry is super flavorful, anti inflammatory and delightful. The paste can be made at home and used whenever you want a bowl of the soup or a quick stir fry. Use whatever ingredients you have in the paste and make this curry laksa with noodles or more veggies or crisped up panfried tofu. The spices are toasted then blended or processed with herbs, aromatics, fresh turmeric root and some cashews. The paste is roasted in a little oil to release the flavors, then mushrooms and veggies and cooked for a few. The broth, coconut milk and noodles are brought to a boil and simmered until the noodles are tender and the soup thickens a bit to preference. Fold in some greens, mint and cilantro and serve. Fresh turmeric root adds the bright color to this laksa paste. Use ground turmeric if you cannot find the fresh root. Also try this turmeric root ginger root tea for the fall blues. Turmeric stains, so work carefully whether using fresh or dry.
