Chicken Laksa with Coriander

Found very fresh local coriander at the farmers market and cooked Laksa!

Laksa is from southeast Asian noodle dish and I always enjoy this simple bowl of noodle at food court or Laksa shop in Singapore or Malaysia.

Usually I use rice noodle or yellow noodle but I used somen noodle(one of wheat flour noodle in Japan). People enjoy cold somen noodle dipping dashi-shoyu sauce but also go well with hot miso soup in winter in Japan. So I follow the tradition and enjoyed it with spicy Laksa soup using the coconut milk tonight. Very simple but flavorful noodle dish.

There are many Ramen, Japanese Soba (brown colored buckwheat noodle) and Udon noodle shop in Japan but we hardly see somen noodle on the restaurant menu. You can find somen noodle (dried noodle and boil in the hot water) at most of supermarket in Japan. If you are a noodle person,  you may like the somen!!  Enjoy 😉

      Thanks !! Actually I used Laksa paste for this dish so it’s easy and quick meal! If you can find it in your city, try and enjoy the dish!

  2. What a great idea to use somen. I love using non-traditional types of noodles with these Asian sauces! Usually I use spaghetti, but I will definitely try the somen!
