What you will need:

  • 100g Mama Tan’s Laksa Paste
  • 100g chicken breast (cut in thin strips)
  • 80g king prawns (shelled and deveined)

Mamatan's Chicken Laksa!

To prepare:

  1. Boil 600ml of water in a saucepan and add chicken. Cook for about 10 minutes or until cooked. Remove the cooked chicken from the water and add the king prawns, bring to the boil again and cook for about 1 minute or until tuned pink and thoroughly cooked. Remove the prawns and this water now becomes the basis of your stock.
  2. Add to this stock, Mama Tan’s Laksa Paste, coconut milk, stock cube and soy sauce. Bring to the boil and stir until Laksa paste has dissolved. Leave to simmer in low heat while preparing for the next stage.
  3. In another saucepan, boil 500ml of water and quickly blanch beansprout (2-5 seconds) and remove from the boiling water. Then in the same boiling water, add the fresh rice vermicelli (1-2 minutes) and drain.
  4. To serve, put noodles in a bowl, arrange the cooked chicken, cooked king prawns and beansprout on top, and top off with the Laksa soup and da-tah enjoy!

(Hints and tips)

Try a squeeze of lemon juice with the laksa for lighter and fresher taste.

Customer Comments

"Shanly Tan is INSPIRATIONAL! Her recipes are mouthwatering!"
Mark Birkett, Manchester

"I've tried many of Mama Tans delicious dishes, savoury pastries and peanut satay sauce being my favourite! The pastes last for ages and the recipe cards are really simple and easy to make with great results (even for someone with such limited cooking experience as me!). After trying laksa in Malaysia i wanted to try and make it in the UK until I realised how many different hard to find spices were in it and also couldn't buy the paste anywhere so was super excited to find than Mama Tan is making her own. A real taste of Malaysia!"
Andrew, Manchester

"love the Satay Marinade Sauce and Peanut Sauce. Drove to Leeds Vegan Festival to get some more peanut sauce [I'm not a vegan] the recipe cards are so easy to follow even I can be a Master Chef for the night. Keep up the good work"
