Chicken Minced with Herbs and Spices Recipe

Ingredients :

1 kg chicken thigh fillets

1/4 cup short-grain rice

2 tablespoons peanut oil

5 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons fresh galangal, grated

3 small red chilies

4 onions, chopped finely

1/4 cup fish sauce

1 tablespoon shrimp paste

3 tablespoons fresh Vietnamese mint, chopped

2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

4 tablespoons lime juice

 

Method :

Preheat the oven to moderate 180oC. Roast the rice for 15 minutes or until golden by spreading it out on an oven tray. When slightly cool, process using a food processor until finely ground. Set aside. Place the chicken fillets in a food processor and process until finely minced. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the garlic, galangal, chili and spring onion and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the minced chicken to the wok and stir for 5 minutes, or until the mince is browned. Break up any large lumps with a wooden spoon. Stir in the fish sauce and shrimp paste and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the wok from the heat, stir in the rice, mint, basil and lime juice, and mix to combine well.
