Larb Gai is a light, flavorful dish from northern Thailand. The sour, spicy and sweet tastes will keep your interest, and you probably won’t realize you’re not actually eating a lot.
After a bite of the chicken, take a cool bite of carrots, cucumber or cabbage to counteract the chiles. (Conversely, you can boost the heat level by adding more red pepper flakes.) If you prefer, substitute seafood or another meat for the chicken.
