But, I thought I was a hero. I bought chicken feet and I struggled to pull out the skin. Hack! Nevertheless, to cut short on the story, here's to this soft gelatinous chicken feet tossed with carrot, chillies, shallots, fish sauce, lime juice and crunchy roasted cashew nuts.
10 pieces chicken feet - simmer to soften, immediately rinsed and de-boned.
1/2 (about 90g) carrot - sliced into thin stripes
1 red chilli- sliced
2 birds eye chillies - sliced (optional)
5 shallots - sliced thinly
1/4 inch ginger - sliced into thin stripes
40g/one handful roasted and crushed cashew nuts
2 stalks coriander leaves - sliced
1/2 lemon/lime - extract juice
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 small piece palm sugar - powdered
Salt for taste (use sparingly)
Add all ingredients into a bowl, toss together and that's it.
