Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chicken Cakes:
  2. Mix all the chicken cake ingredients together, except the oil. Roll into small balls and chill.
  3. Fry in hot oil until browned all over and cooked through. Serve with pickled vegetables and steamed rice (on a banana leaf, if using).
  4. Pickled Vegetables:
  5. For the pickled vegetables, peel, trim and cut cucumber and carrots into small batons. Cut beans into short lengths. Bring vinegar and salt to the boil in a saucepan and plunge in carrots, cauliflower and beans. Blanch for 1 minute then drain.
  6. Purée garlic, chillies and shallots in a blender or food processor. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and add the blended paste. Stir-fry for 3 minutes, then add the vegetables and toss to coat in the paste. Transfer to a bowl. The vegetables can be made up to 5 days ahead; keep refrigerated.
