Laksa is a highly popular dish and one to die for. Special (often secret) recipes have been passed down over time and you'll always find someone who can recommend what they believe to be the best laksa stall in town.
So what exactly is it about this tantalising dish that makes people lose their good sense and do whatever they can to get to the next yummy bowl of red hot laksa? You'll see when you look at the ingredients further down and when you've tried a really good recipe, you'll never look at laksa the same way again.
True blue fans of laksa would do anything to get their hands on the best recipe ever to be crowned Laksa King or Queen of the neighbourhood. A good recipe always has that special X-factor ingredient thrown in, sworn to secrecy through generations in the family.
So, are you ready to know what the most important ingredient to make a stunning bowl of laksa is? It's the magnificent Torch Ginger or Bunga Kantan.
