My Mum is a fantastic cook. We love and enjoy Mum's cooking especially her Assam Laksa. This version of laksa is different to the more popular curry laksa. Assam Laksa is a sourish fish base stock served with rice spaghetti, garnished with pineapple, cucumber, mint leaves, spanish onions, chilli and prawn paste (hae koe).
Today, Mum cooked two different types of laksa - Assam and Thai Laksa. The latter has coconut milk and kaffir lime leaves added to the ingredients.
I made two different desserts for lunch - Pulut Tai Tai, a type of Nyonya kueh made with glutinous rice and coconut milk served with kaya (coconut jam).
The second dessert was Sticky Date Pudding with Caramel Sauce. You can find the recipe here.
