Laksa ka Chaska

Veg penang Laksa with assorted condiments.

Preparation time: 20mins
Cooking time: 30mins
Serves: 4

Recipe Ingredients::
100g peeled onions
8 garlic cloves
25g peeled ginger, sliced
15g lemongrass (soft white stem only), sliced
2 tsp ground coriander
3 large dried red chillies
2 tbsp chilli paste
4 tbsp vegetable oil
50g fresh coriander
1¼ litres vegetable stock
3 branches curry leaves
2 tsp curry powder
1½ tsp salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
400ml coconut milk
100g rice vermicelli noodles
300g bean sprouts
150g french beans, trimmed and halved
250g fried tofu puffs (optional)
4 limes, halved
Recipe Method:
Put the first seven ingredients in a small food processor bowl. Add half the oil, and the roots and stems of the fresh coriander, and process to a semi-smooth paste.
Heat the remaining oil in a saucepan and fry the spice paste on medium heat for 20 mins, stirring all the time – you want to cook it slowly without burning. Add the stock, curry powder, salt, sugar and coconut milk, simmer gently for 30 mins, then taste and add more salt if necessary.
Once the broth is done, steep the rice noodles in boiling water for three mins and drain. Throw the bean sprouts into a pan of boiling water, drain at once and refresh. Cook the beans in boiling water for three mins, drain and refresh.
Add the beans, noodles and half the sprouts, ladle into large bowls and top with the remaining sprouts, tofu puffs and shredded coriander leaves. Squeeze lime juice on top and throw one half of squeezed lime into each bowl.

The big move in Pankaj Bhadouria’s life came with a small step when she decided to leave her successful teaching career spanning over 16 years and enter India's 1st televised cookery reality show - MasterChef India on the leading GEC - Star Plus. And as they say, fortune favours the brave, Pankaj went on to become a worthy winner and with it India's first ever MasterChef.
