LAKSAM


Laksam is a roll rice noodles popular among the people in East Coast Malaysia. Just like Laksa, laksam serves with fish gravy in coconut milk. If Assam Laksa is sourish laksam is a bit creamy. Process of doing laksam gravy is similar to the normal Laksa gravy, however you have to make your own noodles. You hardly find the ready made noodles in the shop. Anyway to make one is simple!!! Here's what you need for the noodles, the garnishing and the gravy.

Ingredients :

2 cups of rice flour (tepung beras)/ 2 cawan tepung beras
1 table spoon of tapioca starch (tepung kanji/tepung ubi kayu) / 1 sdb tepung ubi
1 pinch of kapur (gapo la kapur in English?) / secubit kapur
1 pinch of salt / secubit garam
4 cups of water / 4 cawan air
some oil for greasing /  minyak untuk mengoles.


Preparing the Laksam
  1. Mix rice flour with salt and water. Stir well./ Satukan bahan kering dan masukkan air. Gaul rata.
  2. Heat the steamer. Brush with a bit of oil on a flat medium sized steel dish and place inside the steamer./ Panaskan kukusan dan oleskan minyak pada loyang leper - saya guna tudung periuk aje.
  3. Pour in a thin layer of the mixture./ Tuangkan adunan ke atas tudung periuk, buat nipis.
  4. Steam approximately 1 to 2 minutes until cooked./ Kukus selama 2 minit
  5. When cooked, roll it up. / Angkat dan sejukkan. Kemudian gulung macam buat kuih dadar
  6. Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 until all mixture is used up. / Ulangi proses sehingga habis

Saya masih ingat lagi ketika menuntut di Universiti, teman sebilik saya rajin membuat Laksam, tukang perabiskanya ialah saya. Saya memang suka sekali..tetapi lecehkan hendak membuatnya...kalau ada yang sudah siapkan senang, balik buat kuah aje. Biasanya kalau buat laksam saya suka buat kuahnya banyak-banyak sekali. Habis laksam bolehlah celur laksa pula..maka jadi pula Laksa Kelantan...
