How to chiffonade Kaffir lime leaves

I often like to garnish my dishes with finely cut kaffir lime leaves. The technique is known as a chiffonade and can also be applied to other herbs such as basil. This is achieved by taking a few lime leaves and stacking them on top of one another, rolling them up tightly and using a sharp knife to slice finely as in the picture.

Chicken Khao Soi or Chiang Mai Curried Noodles
Chicken Khao Soi

I firmly believe that Khao Soi should be ranked as one of the world's great dishes. You can call it a curry or you can call it a noodle soup and it is both of those with more on top, literally on top! A broth of aromatic curry paste and orange-tinged coconut milk with tender chicken falling apart for you, boiled noodles lurking underneath and becoming coated with fragrant oil as they break the surface. Crispy noodles on top you can manipulate and dunk into the sauce,

This is a totally delicious way to serve roast chicken as well as being very simple to prepare. Cooking a whole chicken this way is practised in various forms throughout Asia, sometimes pot roasted, sometimes over hot coals and with many different curry pastes. Often cooked in the home, rather than restaurants, which is probably the reason why many Westerners are not familiar with the dish. Well, now is the time to change that and I promise you that you won't regret it!

Very tasty flavours

I purchased the massaman curry sauce and cooked it with beef shin, using a good quality coconut milk. It was delicious! Quite an unusual sauce with flavours that I have never eaten before and also slightly sweet which I very much enjoyed especially with the slight kick of heat at the end. I will definitely be trying some more flavours. Thank you.
