450 grams of ground chicken/turkey
1/2 - 1 tsp of chilli flakes or 1 chilli minced (optional)
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp of ground pan roasted rice
2 largish shallots thinly sliced
3 green onions sliced
1/4 cup of lime juice
1/4 cup of mint leaves chopped
3 tbsp of cilantro leaves chopped
Preheat oven to 350. Place the ground chicken mixed with the salt in an oven proof dish and cover with tinfoil. Place in the oven and cook for 10 minutes then remove and mix it up, chopping into smaller pieces. Return to the oven and cook for another 10 - 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and break into small pieces. If there is a lot of liquid, drain some off.
While the chicken is cooking, put a pan on medium heat and add 4 tbsp of raw rice (any kind will do). Toss the rice every once in a while so that it is golden. Remove from the heat and place in mortar, coffee grinder or ziploc and bash the crap out of it. It shouldn't be powder, you want some texture to it.
When the chicken has cooled, mix with the rest of the ingredients and taste test. You may need more salt, lime, chilli or herbs according to your tastes. This is often served with raw cabbage leaves and sticky rice but served as a side dish it's not necessary.
