I am so happy to find a recipe to eat with Chaplu Leaves. That’s because I have a plant growing out back. And it is really growing!
I think this is a vine, and it spreads out and grows to whatever area is open. So the other day I was able to cut a couple dozen large leaves to eat. I use them as a wrapper, and put the food inside.
This is such a healthy recipe and rich with nutrients. Here’s how I made it.
4 cups cooked rice
1 stick Nam ( Thai cured pork)
½ cup ground pork
2 tbsp curry paste
½ cup thin sliced red onion
¼ cup shredded ginger
2 tbsp fish sauce
3 tbsp lime juice
1 cup toasted peanuts
3 cups vegetable oil
1. Mix cooked rice with curry paste, egg, then make into mini ball shapes and put in deep until golden brown and crispy.
3. Take out into dish with paper towel to cool.
4. Break up fried rice balls into small chunks and Nam into small pieces.
5. Season with fish sauce and lime juice and add sliced ginger, toasted peanut, red pepper and scallion.
6. Serve with any fresh veggies. I prfer fresh chaplu leaves, cilantro or lettuce.
