What do you usually do to use up your abundant stock of pasta? Only use it for spaghetti? Oh no, you’ll get absolutely sick with spaghetti – except for you who are spaghetti maniac :). One of a great ways to use it up is by making it into laksa. Have you tried laksa before? How does it taste? For you who are Asians may be you’ll say “fabulous”, but for you who are not used to heavy greasy gravy…. – I can only smile :). For this laksa, I made the spicy one. I don’t know why, spicy-tasted food just does work really good on my tongue.
