This is delicious and not so strange! I definitely recommend using fish sauce if you can find it. I adapted this from a recipe I found in a bargain asian cookbook.

Delicious and, yes, with a bit of a strange flavour -- I think it must be the tahini. I followed this recipe as written except for using thigh meat (tastier I think) and a tin of baby carrots which were so tender that I didn't need to julienne them. I will go to the extra effort next time, because the tinned carrots were too soft. I recommend eating all of this on the day it is made -- it loses something on the next day.
