  1. Wow, looks so delicious! For me, Malacca Nyonya Laksa is the best there is! Hahaha! We sometimes use see ham instead of prawns, and next time when you make this, instead of daun kesum leaves, try using young leaves of daun limau purut, fold in half lengthwise, cut off the centre vein, and slice very thinly across. Add that as garnish when you serve the bowl of this yummy laksa, it makes a whole lot of difference, try it! The kaffir lime leaves is a must in Malacca Nyonya Laksa! And we love lots of quail eggs too!
    Now you are making me crave for some Nyonya Laksa! Yours looks super delicious!

  7. Hi Abby,
    I just had Nyonya curry laksa in Malacca last week, but the taste doesn't suit me that well. I will try your recipe and hope that it will turn out good. The ones that they are selling at my place (KL) are from Penang Nyonya style, and it tastes really nice. Is there any difference between the Malacca and Penang Nyonya curry laksa recipe? Tq. Jamie.
