Pumpkin & Mushroom Laksa

Laksa is part of a Malaysian cuisine but I didn’t want to make a Malaysian instead wanted to give an Indian touch. I kept the base of pumpkin and added mushroom which I simply adore and added broccoli as it’s in season during winter alongwith some spices and the result was a lip smacking Laksa on noodles #MadhubishsKitchen #foodie #foodies
