This is used in many ways...rub over chicken and barbecue, marinade fish and warp in banana leaf and steam, add to rice porridge.

Add to: 300 gr chicken mince 3 lime leaves, three quarters cup grated cocunut, 2 tspn palm sugar half tspn salt, 1 tbspn fried dried onion and hald stick finely chopped lemon grass. kead until very sticky. Mold around soaked bamboo satay sticks and charcoal grill.

this is chicken satay, not the kebabs that are sold for tourist consumption.
