Place the chicken in a shallow serving bowl. Add the shallots and toss.
Mix together the lime juice, shallot oil, salt, and green chile in a small bowl or cup. Pour over the salad and, using your hands, mix thoroughly. If you have the time, let stand for 10 minutes.
Just before serving, add the toasted chickpea flour, if you wish, the fried shallots and herbs, and mix well. Tast
