Spicy Laksa Stir Fry/Laksa Goreng

It is quite common in most families in Malaysia to prepare any form of stir fry for breakfast or dinner . The common fried rice, fried noodles, kuow teoy noodles and bee hoon (rice vermicelli) noodle is a must at least once a week in most homes.
Instead of preparing with gravy as I have not that much likeness to fish,
I thought to prepare a stir fry using laksa noodles.



Picture on the left shows fresh laksa noodle bought from the market.


Laksa is basically noodles (made of rice or wheat) served with a special gravy. Each state in the country boasts of its own version. One thing in common about each type is, besides having fish as the main ingredient, the gravy is rich in herbs and spices, and the garnishing also includes generous amounts of chillies, raw herbs, fresh fruits (especially pineapple) and vegetables.

It is a popular spicy noodle soup from Peranakan culture also known as Baba and Nyonya, which is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements found in Malaysia and Singapore.

If you make a trip to the wet market, there are 2 types of laksa noodles being sold which are short type noodles and noodles which are longer.I bought the short laksa noodles which will go very well with stir frying.



500gm laksa noodles
4 eggs (beaten)
1 cup of prawns ,squids and chicken pieces
A few slices fish cakes
1 stalk spring onions/chives (cut into 1 cm in lenght)
1 cup beansprout
1 small onion(cut in slices)
3 garlic(chopped)
1 tsp chilli paste(optional)
Salt to taste
1 ½ tsp sugar

Sauces
¾ tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 ½ tbsp light soy sauce

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok.Saute garlic and onion until aromatic.Add in fish cakes,prawns ,squids and chicken pieces and stir fry for another 2 to 3mins.Add chilli paste at this stage (if using).Saute a few seconds further.Add in laksa noodles and combine all the ingredients together. Add in the sauces , salt and sugar and stir until all ingredients are well incorporated. Spread the laksa noodles in the wok , add in beaten eggs. Leave for a few seconds before stirring the laksa with the eggs. Mix in beansprout and spring onions .Stir fry a few seconds before dishing out.
