Curry Mee Laksa– this Nyonya (Malaysian/Chinese fusion) Laksa would have to be one of my favourite foods of all time, with its complex and spicy coconut curry soup. Unfortunately for me, it has always been a ‘sometimes’ food thanks to the oil, egg noodles, dumplings and sugar used.
With the grain free noodle substitution and reduced fat content – it is now a regular healthy Thermomix recipe in this house!
You can find this Curry Mee Laksa Thermomix recipe in the cookbook ‘A Little Taste of Asia’. This Laksa has developed a bit of a cult following with its own obsessed subset of Skinnymixers and is often compared to the Laksa found at the Darwin Parap Markets.
I happen to think it’s as good as the Laksa I had in Malaysia, because it isn’t overly sweet and super healthy!
The low carb option with wombok noodles is my favourite!
If you like your Laksa a bit on the spicy side, you might like to make some Sambal Oelek to go with it!

Curry Mee Laksa with Smoked Chicken
Searching my freezer and finding a single portion of laksa paste is many of my recipes are designed to make multiple batches so that you can cook a delicious meal with little effort.
I had a spare lonely chicken thigh from dinner last night, so while the Curry Mee Laksa was cooking, I rubbed it with an activated charcoal rub & then using Grant Neal’s technique I smoked it in my Traeger at 350f / 176c until it reached an internal temp of 165f / 74c. The addition of the smoked chicken & the method on how to cook it was INSANE.
Both the laksa paste & the Curry Mee Laksa are found in A Little Taste of Asia.
Inspiration for this recipe came from my extensive research on laksa while travelling through Malaysia (read: I ate a LOT of laksa ). Every time I cook it I am reminded of how proud I am of what I can achieve with my thermy and authentic flavours
