Chicken Feet Salad (Kerabu)


Chicken Feet? Unsure I am how you are reacting right now? This bottom part, chicken walking its way feet? If you are asking me, I am truly an avid chicken feet loving person. I know. Sounds gross right? But for those of you who love chicken feet, I bet you can strongly relate to me? Obviously, of the chicken of course (Sweet Chilli Chicken, Chicken Vegetable Soup, Sesame Chicken & Chicken Wonton Soup), the other part like their wings which some of you won't mind. Whatever said about chicken feet, cleaning the feet for this Chicken Feet Salad can be hell. Imagine, simmering or boiling and then carefully pulling out the gooey bitsy out of the feet. Sure, I think pre-cleaned chicken feet is now on the mark in hypermarkets, or maybe at wet markets too, I on the other hand, did the cleaning myself. My heroic action was definitely a struggle, yet I managed to, prior to tossing alongside carrot, chillies, shallots, fish sauce, lime juice and crunchy roasted cashew nuts for the delightfulness of Chicken Feet Salad/Kerabu (Cashew Masala Chicken, Honey Chilli Chicken, Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken & Chicken Curry).


Ingredients
10 pieces chicken feet - simmer to soften, immediately rinsed and de-bone/pull the fresh out basically.
1/2 (about 90g) carrot - slice into thin stripes
1 red chilli- sliced
2 birds eye chillies - slice (optional)
5 shallots - slice thinly
1/4 inch ginger - slice into thin stripes
40g/one handful roasted and crushed cashew nuts/or peanuts
2 stalks coriander leaves - slice
1/2 lemon/lime - extract juice
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 small piece palm sugar - powdered
Salt for taste (use sparingly)

Method:
Add all ingredients into a bowl, toss together and that's it.
