I love laksa in all its varieties, including Asam Laksa, Nyonya Laksa, Laksa Johor, Laksa Kedah, and many more. Due to Malaysia’s heterogeneous population, the laksa list is endless. This is what makes Malaysia unique!
Hence, it is no doubt that the Laksa is a symbol of Malaysian culinary culture given its evocative aroma, rich flavour, and satisfying texture. The brand-new MAGGI® Mi Goreng Laksa Warisan, with its original flavour and distinctive aroma, is being introduced in honour of Malaysians’ love of laksa and as a tribute to the tradition of this Malaysian classic cuisine.
As a brand that has over 50-year history and a meaningful space in the hearts of Malaysians, MAGGI® continues to proudly celebrate our heritage in all our offerings. Today, we are delighted to be part of the celebration of Malaysia’s vibrant Laksa dishes as we present our latest product innovation that pays homage to our nation’s diverse and distinctive culinary heritage: our all-new MAGGI® Mi Goreng Laksa Warisan.said Mr. Juan Aranols, CEO of Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad at the launch event held at the vintage-themed mansion, The Agam in Kuala Lumpur
Celebrity Chef Anis Nabilah and Professor Dr. Shahrim Karim, who is a Professor of Malaysian Heritage Food and Culture at the Faculty of Food Science and Technology at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), were in attendance at the launch event. They demonstrated their culinary skills and expertise by creating a delicious Laksa dish while sharing the dish’s rich history and evolution.
Laksa is a cuisine that has its roots in the Peranakan population and is heavily influenced by Southeast Asian cultures from China, Malaysia, and Indonesia. According to Professor Dr. Shahrim Karim, Laksa is truly Malaysia’s national dish that transcends cultures and geographical boundaries. It has evolved into a variety of dishes that we are familiar with and enjoy today, ranging from the traditional Curry Laksa to more creative dishes like Assam Laksa, Sarawak Laksa, Nyonya Laksa, and Johor Laksa.
The soul of Laksa lies in its vibrant and aromatic flavours. A good Laksa is all about the balancing act between various ingredients with the constant stirring towards the ‘pecah minyak’ stage, which is vital for the perfect Laksa flavour that culminates in a true culinary delight.added Professor Dr. Shahrim Karim
With the growing popularity of making laksa the “Goreng” style, people have been looking for new ways to enjoy this well-known meal with family and friends in recent years. The All-New MAGGI® Mi Goreng Laksa Warisan is a unique variation on the Malaysian Laksa heritage that draws inspiration from this popular trend.
As Malaysia’s trusted household brand, MAGGI® aspires to deliver product offerings that embody true Malaysian flavours. Thanks to our MAGGI® Chefs’ continued dedication and culinary expertise, we have given a modern-day twist to Laksa as we introduce our latest innovation MAGGI® Mi Goreng Laksa Warisan. Indeed, the secret of making a good Laksa lies in its base. Hence, our new creation is carefully crafted with a blend of key aromatic ingredients, bunga kantan, daun kesum, galangal, along with fresh ingredients: onions, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, garlic and ginger, slowly cooked into a paste until ‘pecah minyak’ to deliver the distinctive flavour of the iconic Laksa dish whilst preserving its authentic recipe. We are embracing this heritage dish, by making it possible to enjoy a great tasting Laksa Goreng – anytime, anywhere!said Ms. Ivy Tan, Business Executive Officer of MAGGI®, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad
