made 7pax pong’s laksa today on 5.7.2019, with my OPS and RI bros WT,WM, HC, LKY, LKH and HAB. ^^
HC had lunch with brother still came over at 2pm. I made a bowl for him. 🙂
i love curry chicken noodles.
- according to makansutra this dish was famously created by teochews in singapore exemplifying singapore’s chumchum 参参 mixed heritage ..the 3 famous teochew nang stalls are ah heng and heng kee at hong lim food centre and da po at golden mile food centre.
I don’t have the secret recipe to make the curry chicken noodles gravy..
so i approximate using pong’s laksa paste and added the important secret ingredient haebee, and laksa leaves, AND and very tasty chicken stock, excellent taste. ..
and the usual taupok, teochew fish cake, and fish cake..no potatoes for me..
cannot c/w ah heng etc of course but still very shiok! haven’t learn how to make the dried shrimp sambal yet..
made 白斩鸡 and 白猪肉. & had lots of taupok, teochew fish cake and fish cake.
i think my 白斩鸡 is smoother, chicken breast more moist, and sweeter & tastier than ah heng. ^^
1/2 chicken, salt in fridge overnight, clean thoroughly, placed in boiling stock (chicken bones, carrots, scallions, whole bulb garlic cloves, ginger, red onions) boiled covered 12mins, off fire poached 24mins, placed in ice water bath, then in fridge for 1 hr, then debone.
for the 白斩鸡 drizzle sauce, i added 1tbsp flat sugar, 2tbsp light soy sauce, 1tbsp sesame oil, 6tbsp stock or water. taste it!
and 白猪肉 also very tender and tasty…
boiled in stock 1.5hrs. placed in fridge. and cut & added stock to warm up when serving. hence very tender yet cut neatly no fraying.
and i added the 白斩鸡 drizzle sauce, w/o sesame, very nice. 🙂
i had had lots of taupok, teochew fish cake…. and fish cake.
i think it approximate quite well in that laksa broth was wonderful, only thing not spicy, need to add some haebeehiam sambal next time, and my 白斩鸡 and 白猪肉 were excellent texture and taste. but of course it is still NOT the same ah heng curry chicken gravy…
WT made very nice msw fried rice and haebeehiam fried rice..
WT not feeling so well, and i likewise so we took plain soup and less noodles..
lovely 白斩鸡 eaten on its own…
my OPS gang brought msw from tangkak, frozen and thawed, super flavourful better than the msw i had recently..
the guys stayed and chatted quite tilled quite late.
really good time together with the bros chit chat and sharing.
