Singaporean (Laksa) Curry Noodles

Singaporean (Laksa) Curry Noodles with Homemade noodles. This dish reminds me of my childhood, when my Mom cooked this for us. I grew up in the Malay/Indonesian culture, so beside this Singaporean Laksa, She used to  cook for us the Spicy n Sour Penang Assam Laksa, which is also delicious. This Singaporean Laksa is cooked with the coconut curry broth which is fragrant and just the right of richness. As for this dish, I don’t have the dried chillies, so I skipped it. I made the noodles from scratch, you can check the recipe here
