• Masterchef winner Ping Coombes shares her recipe for Malaysian Kari Laksa Nyonya

    Ping Coombes, the winner of Masterchef in 2014, shares her recipe for a traditional Malaysian Kari Laksa Nyonya, as featured in her cookbook MALAYSIA: Recipes from a Family Kitchen. "This hot, steaming bowl of fragrant, spicy broth with noodles, prawns and egg is a common dish in Malaysia. The key component is the spice paste, which takes a bit of time, but once you've made it, you can keep it in the fridge for up to a month. Alternatively, there are very good shop-bought pastes available." Serves 4 1.2 litres water 1 quantity of Laksa Paste 250ml coconut milk 1 tbsp chicken stock powder 1
