Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa

Honestly, after sharing hundreds over recipes, I sometimes can't recall what else I have not spoken about. Maybe age has slowed me down or perhaps it is better not to share too much of unwanted stories. Seriously, I don't know. Then again, a recipe without an intro I think is akin a naked start. So, the easiest way of dressing up this recipe will be conveniently linking the previous Nyonya dishes (Nyonya Steam FishNyonya Assam Fish Curry, Nyonya Style Fish Achar & Nyonya Chicken Curry) including the Nyonya Curry Laksa and Nyonya Assam Laksa.

Then of course, you must, yes, you must I insist, you must take a look at the various laksa recipes I have shared before (Curry Mee Vegetarian, Laksam NoodleAsam Laksa Lemak, Thai Laksa & Instant Curry Laksa). Alright. So far so good I suppose to sum up laksa - an absolute Malaysian wholesome one bowl dish. Today, I bring you a vegetarian version (Mee Rojak VegetarianMee Rebus Vegetarian & Mee Siam Kuah Vegetarian) - spectacularly fab with its spicy, creamy and aromatic flavors.

For the gravy paste
2 lemongrass/serai
1/2 inch fresh turmeric/kunyit
1/2 inch galangal/lengkuas
5 shallots
5 garlic
5 fresh red chillies (or as needed)
4 dried red chillies (or as needed)
**Pulse/blend with some water for a thick paste
Other ingredients
2 to 3 cups vegetable stock
1 Chinese brinjal (cut into two and slice)
1 packet tofu pok (sliced)
1 cup thick coconut milk
Some mint leaves (for garnishing)
Some basil leaves (for garnishing)
Mee Hoon (or any type of noodles) - blanch to soften
1/4 cup oil
Salt to taste

Heat oil.
Fry gravy paste over low heat till aromatic and oil splits.
Pour 2 cups of stock (or more for more gravy) and brinjal.
Season with salt.
Simmer and cook to soften brinjal.
Add tofu pok and pour coconut milk.
Meanwhile, assemble noodles with mint leaves and basil leaves.
Pour gravy over and serve immediately.
