⁣Asam laksa – spicy & tangy tamarind-based soup⁣🤤

Happy Thursday, friends🤗. Asam laksa, another family’s night market favorite for supper can now be made at home. Asam means sour in Malay, and you can expect a sour & spicy flavor from this dish. Originally made with fish, my version has mushroom which once blended gives this soup the texture it needs. Thanks to my friend @wkohlee who taught me this method years ago🙏🏻😘

Recipe (yields 3-4 servings)
~ fresh laksa noodles/dried vermicelli (soak until soft & blanch in hot water)⁣
~ 1 small 🍍, cut into small cubes – save core for soup⁣
