    • 1. If the pandan leaves have any roots on them, remove these and clean the leaves. Let them dry out.
    • 2. While the pandan leaves are drying, use a pestle and mortar to pound the Thai garlic, Thai Pepper and Thai coriander root until you get a fine paste.
    • 3. Dice the chicken into small pieces, and then mix it with the paste you’ve just made. Also add the light soy sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil. Leave this to marinate for a couple of hours.
    • 4. Using this video and image below as a guide wrap the chicken with the pandan leaves, making sure all the chicken is totally wrapped.
    • 5. Put all the wrapped chicken in a steamer and steam them over boiling water for about 10 minutes.
    • 6. To make the dipping sauce, in a small bowl add the sugar, soy sauce, water and salt. Keep stirring until the sugar has dissolved. You can top this with toasted sesame seeds.
