Spring Rolls with Sweet Tamarind Soy ~ Curry Laksa

Loading...
Everywhere you go in Malaysia there are hawker centres and food stalls with tasty offerings, whether it's a quick snack or a full-blown meal, and this month we're sampling two of the most popular dishes. To begin, we’ve got spring rolls (or popiah) - tasty seasoned veg inside a crispy filo pastry casing, served with a sweet tamarind soy dipping sauce. Next up, curry laksa - a popular dish throughout Singapore and Malaysia which represents the diversity of the population there. A fragrant paste is first fried to deepen the flavour, then liquid is added to create a mildly-spiced coconut broth - the addition of noodles, veg and tofu makes this a really hearty and aromatic dish.
