- Place a pan over low fire and stir in Thai sticky rice. Fry until the rice turns golden yellow and fragrant, around 15 mins. Remove to cool. Then, pound or blend the rice until it turns into coarse powder. Set aside.
- Add oil into a pan and heat over medium flame. Put in the pork and fry. Using your spatula, break the meat into smaller pieces. Once the pork is fully cooked, remove the pan from the heat. Mix in 1 heaping tbsp of the toasted rice powder, chilli flakes, sugar, fish sauce and lime juice until well combined. Add in shallots and remaining herbs. Mix well. Taste and season according to your preference.
- Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with mint leaves, Thai sweet basil and coriander.
- Serve with steamed rice, noodles or stuff into tofu puffs.
