From this, and a few other items:
I’m not one for hyperbole, but this was seriously one of the best things I ever ate, let alone made. But I really don’t mean to brag; it was also one of the easiest things I’ve ever made, practically no cooking skills required. The work was mostly in organizing a bunch of ingredients, getting them ready in sequence, and throwing them together. (Ingredient list: coconut milk, cooked prawns, cooked chicken – I browned some thighs and threw them in the microwave, cooked Chinese noodles, frozen peas, and boiled egg.) It had Andrew and me happily slurping, sniffling, and glowing from the heat, and slopping the gravy everywhere – I even splashed some in my eye at one point.
Thanks to Hsien-Hsien Lei for suggesting the curry laksa paste!
