This was lovely. I had some dried galangal which I just didn't soak long enough, so grated it a bit then gave up and used some ginger instead. Used chicken mince bought, but otherwise made as written. I loved the smell of the ground rice. I didn't get a soggy breading flavour, but it was a little gritty. Still tasted great. I served in a lettuce cup on rice and all diners enjoyed the meal.
This was quite good flavour-wise. I love galangal, it adds a very special flavour which cannot be quite imitated by ginger. The only thing I really didn't like was the ground rice sprinkled over the dish. The flavour of the toasted and ground rice is very nice, but somehow it gave my dish the consistency of soggy breading. I'm not sure if this is intended but we definitely didn't really like it - personal preference I guess :) It was a very interesting experience, though, and I like the idea of that toasted and ground rice.

Delicious! Chicken thighs works so well for this. The aromatics work beautifully together. This is one larb-loving family. :-)
