This is exquisite no matter how many times I alter it. I have to say, although galangal sounds exotic enough to not be found easy through most groceries store, it is definitely worth getting. It is so aromatic and adds so much flavor to the larb! I would have to say the first time, allowing all of the juices to evaporate in the 3rd step made the chicken too dry. The second time, as soon as i finished seasoning the ground chicken with the shrimp paste, fish sauce, and sugar (and crab paste just because i was curious), I added the lime juice, mint, and basil right away. The 2nd time turned out alot juicier and my whole laotian house was happy. You can't mess this recipe up! Authentic and delicious! Thanks Nana!
