  • In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat and add rempah. Cook, stirring, until oil begins to separate, 6 to 8 minutes. Add 9 1/2 cups water and lemongrass; bring to a boil. Immediately reduce heat to a simmer. Let simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Add coconut milk, salt, sugar, chicken seasoning, if using, and 5 tofu puffs. Simmer over medium-low heat for 7 minutes. Add noodles and cook for 30 seconds to absorb flavor. Transfer noodles to serving bowls.

  • Top noodles with gravy, remaining tofu puffs, beansprouts, fishcake, prawns, and scallops. Garnish with laksa and serve immediately.
