Nyonya cooking is a hybrid of Chinese and Malaysian cooking styles, typical of the Straits-born Chinese (also known as Perenakan Chinese) communities of Malaysia and Singapore. In step 6 you can use other ingredients you have to hand, such as tofu, salmon or cooked chicken or pork.
Poach the chicken/prawns and make the laksa broth up to 2 days ahead, then cover and chill. Make double the quantity of laksa paste and store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
