I love Thai cuisine. Here is one appetiser that I serve at parties. It is a must that you use the garnish. A Madhur Jaffrey recipe. ( My favourite cookery author). Fruit serves as the base of this open sandwich kind of dish.
Peel and slice the oranges crossways into 5 slices each omitting the side slices and carefully remove all the white pith and the seeds/ You can use 10 pineapple slices too sometimes as the oranges we get in India are not as compact as the western oranges.
Arrange the slices on a platter in a single layer.
Heat oil in a fry pan on medium heat and saute the onions until they brown.
Add the meat and stir till it is brown.
Reduce heat and add the peanuts, sugar and fish sauce.
Stir till the sugar has melted.
Put 1 tblsp or more of this meat mixture in the middle of each orange slice (divide the mix over the ten slices) Place one slice of chilli (Oh! Galloping horses) and 1 leaf of the coriander leaf on each heap of meat and serve at room temperature.
