This lovely laksa curry dish can be warming during cooler weathers.. the tangy, spicy noodle soup has delicious flavours of the herbs and spices from the laksa paste which is the key ingredient and also the fresh prawns and coriander. It makes a complete meal on its own and is quite filling... a treat for spicy food lovers like me .. I would highly recommend this dish if you enjoy spicy food
