DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the lemongrass. Peel off the hard outer layers, trim the base, slice very finely then bash with a knife to bruise them and release the flavour and scent.
  • Heat a frying pan or wok over a fairly high heat. Add the oil, prepared lemongrass, chili and scallions, and cook for 2 minutes Set aside.
  • Put the rice, chicken, mint, cilantro, lime leaves and warm lemongrass mixture into a bowl and toss gently to mix.
  • Whisk together the lime juice, sugar, fish sauce and sesame oil. Pour over salad and mix gently.
  • Chill before serving, if preferred. Spoon salad into small bowls. Sprinkle with cashew nuts, if you like.
