Thai Chicken Patties

Thai Chicken Patties

These patties are made using the same recipe that is used to make Larb Gai - the hot and spicy Thai Chicken Salad :
400 Grams Boneless Thigh Meat
4 Birdseye Red Chilies ( Adjust )
6-8 Cloves of Garlic - Chopped
1/2 " Galanga - Minced.
1" Fresh & Tender Lemon Grass - Minced
1 Red Onion - Chopped.
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce ( Will work well with a light Soy Sauce too ).
Juice of 2 Lemons ( adjust ).
Bunch of Mint and Basil Leaves .
Look out for the ' twist at the end !
Using a knife roughly chop the chicken to make a coarse mince . Shouldn't be fine .
Marinate and cling wrap the chicken in all the ingredients but for the greens & oil for a couple of hours to infuse flavors .
Shape patties fry them covered them in a non stick using very little oil for 3 minutes on each side . Fry covered to retain all juices .

Now the twist ! Once patties are done , remove from pan , retain the juices /oil left after cooking them . Add a bit more oil if needed then add some minced garlic to the oil , salt and black pepper or any chilli flavoring ... saute 30 seconds ,then add 1/2 cup orange juice / grape juice or some wine ... cook over high heat to reduce to a few tablespoons , taste and balance flavors - add salt , chili , sugar or lemon juice IF needed , then add the patties back , cook covered 2 minutes on low heat after coating with the sauce and serve with some delicious greens !
