Minced Chicken Lettuce Wraps

The first time I had minced chicken lettuce wraps was during our trip to Thailand a few years back. This was probably the first dish I tried recreating once I was back from the trip. The best thing about this dish is the simplicity in its preparation. The burst of flavours when you take a bite of it cannot be explained.

Ideally lceberg lettuce or butterhead lettuce is to be used as the wraps. I used chinese cabbage as I had them in my refrigerator. This dish can be served as a starter or used as a meal, if you are on a diet. You can use any meat mince of your choice.
