An old love of mine, asian food… ok, maybe the western version (note to self, one day I’ll go there) and there are soo many variations… I believe there should be more ingredients going in, but I happened not to have them and tried nevertheless. But it tastes nice, really. It’s kinda comfort food. A warming bowl, a large spoon and you’re good to go.
- chicken breast
- coconut milk
- fish sauce
- lime juice
- put the chicken breast along with some coriander, some of the ginger, chilli, the shallots and lemongrass in the blender and mix to a paste;
- form small meatballs;
- in a pot heat some coconut milk and some fish sauce (just a couple of tablespoons), add the ginger in a chunk, the crushed lemongrass and add the meatballs;
- let gently cook for about 10 minutes (until the meatballs are ready) and then remove the ginger and the lemon grass;
- add some chopped coriander and some finely sliced chilly and serve.
