Back in August, my sister and I made our first attempt at laksa, a popular spicy noodle soup of Peranakan cuisine, supervised by mum. :)
The spicy broth requires a gazillion ingredients that need to be cut into millions of pieces [I am exaggerating here of course! *winks*], pounded in a mortar, grinded in a food processor and then stir-fried for an hour before it gets to simmer in coconut milk for another hour.
It was a lot of hard work and even tears for my poor sister...until my mum got her to put the wooden end of a matchstick between her teeth. Apparently, the match head absorbs all the vapours before they get to your eyes... so no more tears when cutting onions! *LOL*
I'm still working hard on dwindling that scrap pile!
Playing along with Stuck?! Sketches.
Happy weekend friends! :)
