This recipe came about after a busy day at work when I really didn’t want to spend a long time preparing dinner.
I opened my fridge to see what I can whip together, I saw some chicken mince, carrots, potatoes and a jar of laksa paste. I also noticed some frozen puff pastry in the freezer.
I had made a shortcut chicken curry pot pie before, so I thought Laksa is very similar in flavour to curry, why don’t i make a laksa chicken pot pie?
And it works! This pie is super easy and quick to put together and feels a lot lighter than your typical bowl of laksa noodles.
Laksa, if you don’t know is a spicy noodle soup popular in Southeast Asia. Laksa consists of thick wheat noodles or rice vermicelli with chicken, prawn or fish, served in spicy soup based on either rich and spicy curry coconut milk or on sour asam. It is very delicious.
This of course do not compare to an actual bowl of laksa noodles but it’s good for when you want that rich, coconut, spicy taste but don’t really want that heavy, carb overload afterwards.
You can use whatever vegetables or meat you have in your fridge, the measurements are also quite fluid, please try and adjust seasonings to your taste as different laksa paste have different strengths. You can buy laksa paste at Asian Grocery Stores. I recommend this one
