Chinese Stir fry Vege with curry Laksa

Last thursday our dinner. Sometimes for a change we make noodles and stir fry vege. Curry laksa is noodles dipped in curry which is lightly spiced with a elegant flavour of coconut milk.

Laksa (Chinese: 叻沙; pinyin: lèshā) is a popular spicy noodle soup from Peranakan culture, which is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements found in Malaysia and Singapore. The name may originate from the Sanskrit word laksha (लक्ष), meaning “many” and referring to the soup’s many ingredients; the word is also the origin of the Hindi term lakh.for more look at here
