HFG tip

What we did…

  • Cut the fat: Laksa is usually made with coconut cream or milk, both of which are high in fat, particularly saturated fat. This recipe uses a smaller amount of reduced-fat coconut milk to cut saturated fat by 80 per cent.
  • Upped the vege: Laksa can be pretty light on veges, but this recipe delivers 2 serves.
  • Reduced the salt: Stock is surprisingly high in sodium, so traditional laksa can deliver half your recommended maximum daily limit for sodium. This recipe not only swaps regular stock for a reduced-salt variety, but also replaces half of this stock with water to lower the total sodium content.
