beetle betel leaves (daun kadok) - I have lots in my backyard!
1/2 cup dried shrimps - toast for 10 minutes in the oven
1/2 cup peanuts - toast in oven, otherwise just buy from store, that's what I did:D
1 lime - choose the one with the thinest skin, i.e. the smoothest, cubed
1/4 cup shallots - peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 cup toasted coconut shreds (yes, I did this myself since I can't buy this anywhere)
1/4 cup ginger, skinned and cubed
1/4 cup bird's eyes chilies for those who want it spicy (I obmitted this)
The fillings all ready...
The whole lot, all ready to be enjoyed!
The way to eat this dish is to take a leaf and fold it to make a cone, fill with a piece of each of the prepare filling, sprinkle some toasted coconut and scoop a teaspoon of the sauce on it and popped the whole thing into your mouth. Mmmmm....delicious! Bursting with flavours, sweet, sour, spicy, crunching, chewy all in a mouthful!
Now pop that into your mouth and taste the flavours!
