Thai Chicken Larb/Larb Gai

This Thai inspired Chicken Larb or Larb Gai is a sour, spicy, and refreshing meat salad. There are variations of Larb, it can be pork, beef, or duck. This is a perfect dish when you want something quick, light, and yet healthy. The only thing you have to cook is the ground chicken, which takes just a few minutes to cook. Once that is done, just mix in with all the chopped and sliced greens, herbs, sauces, and serve with plenty of crisp lettuce.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
