  • 4 tbsp vegetarian korma or madras curry paste
  • 1l milk
  • 750g frozen mixed vegetables
  • 175g quinoa, rinsed


Use rice
If you can’t find quinoa, this soup will work just as well with rice. Rinse 300g long-grain or basmati rice and cook in the laksa until tender.


  1. Simmer the onion and the curry paste with a splash of water for 5 mins in a large saucepan, stirring from time to time. Heat the milk in a jug in the microwave.

  2. Add the vegetables and quinoa, then stir in the milk. Bring to the boil, simmer gently for 10 mins until the quinoa is cooked. Check seasoning. Serve with warm naan bread.
