This Thai staple is along way from French food…but it is delicious and a great way to use up some of the cabbage you have in the fridge!
Serves 2 – 4
2 chicken breasts minced
1 table spoon Khao Kudo
1 red onions or 3 shallots finely sliced
1/2 cup of mint leaves (or coriander or parsley also works)
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon fish sauce
3 spring onions
1/4 of cabbage sliced into wedges or shredded
Serve with Jasmin Rice
Khao Kudo is used frequently in Thai food, it distributes the heat and flavour of the roasted chilli evenly through the food and also acts as a thickening agent.
Make the Khao Kudo
Place 2 tablespoons of rice and 2 – 3 dried chillis in a dry pan and roast until the rice has gone brown and the chillis have blackened. Pound to a fine powder in a mortar and pestle. This will give you enough to store some for another day.
Note: The qty of chilli you used will be dependent on how spicy you like like your food.
