    Serves: 3 

    • 1 inch galangal / laos (lengkuas)
    • 1/2 inch ginger
    • 1/4 inch tumeric
    • 2 garlic
    • 3 lemon grass
    • 1 tsp coriander seeds/powder
    • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds/powder
    • salt to taste
    • sugar to taste (don't use too much though)
    • 300g chicken meat (boneless)
    • some pandan leaves and tooth picks for wrapping

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:1hr  ›  Ready in:2hr 

    1. cut chicken into strips for easy folding and wrapping. then mix all ingredients together and let it sit just for a while say about 20 minutes.
    2. you don't need to marinade for so long because the spice is rather strong so a mere 20 minutes or less would do.
    3. then you can start wrapping the chicken into a nice little parcels then deep fry them in a med fire until done. you know when its done when you see that the pandan leaf turned almost golden and some caramelized (due to the sugar) chicken bits. then ready to serve as appertizers with thai cili dip or serve it with rice.

    Awesome recipe thanks! I used oyster sauce instead of sugar to add a little sweetness.  -  06 Dec 2014
