ข้าวทอดยําแหนม Spicy fried rice balls salad w/cured pork

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.

Prep time: 25 mins | 4 servings

1 egg
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
chapu leaves
cilantro leaves
lettuce leaves

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.
