Method

  1. Heat a wok over high heat. Add the rice and cook, tossing, for 3-5 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly. Transfer to a mortar and gently pound with a pestle until crushed. (Alternatively, place in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped.)

  2. Heat the oil in wok over high heat until smoking. Add the chicken mince and cook, stirring to break up any lumps, for 5 minutes or until chicken starts to brown. Add the lemongrass, chilli and garlic and cook, tossing, for 2 minutes or until aromatic. Remove from heat. Add the sweet chilli sauce, fish sauce, lime juice and sugar and stir to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.

  3. Add the onion, bean sprouts, coriander, mint and lime leaves and gently toss until just combined.

  4. Spoon the chicken mixture among lettuce leaves, then sprinkle with rice and serve immediately.
