This is a classic Thai appetizer with flavors that just scream Thailand! The proper way to put this together is to spoon a little bit of each ingredient into a leaf, top with a little sauce, wrap, and eat!


15-20 betel leaves (cha-ploo) - you can subsitute shiso leaves, fresh grape leaves, or leaf lettuce
Equal portions of:

Roasted peanuts
Shallots, cut into small chunks (1/4" to 1/2")
Ginger, cut into a fine dice
Lime pieces, cut so that each small piece (1/4"-1/2") contains a bit of the peel and a bit of the pulp
Toasted coconut

Sauce ingredients:
1/4 cup palm sugar
1/2 TB galangal root, finely minced
1/2 TB shallots, finely minced
2 TB mushroom-flavored soy sauce
1 TB water
1 TB tamarind water
1/4 tsp. white pepper powder


Mix sauce ingredients and simmer over low heat (while stirring) until sugar has dissolved. Serve peanuts, shallots, ginger, lime, coconut, and chilis on a large platter with betel leaves and sauce on the side.
