Tanya Alwi from Bandaneira gave me this recipe. Again, I don’t think the way I cook this resembles very closely what you would get in restaurants on the island. I use all the ingredients that are used there, but my chicken is limited to tender slices of chicken breast, without the skin.


  • 4 chicken breasts, without skin
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • ¼ tsp


Slice each of the chicken breasts diagonally into 5 or 6 thin slices. Put these into a glass bowl and rub them all over with the lime juice and salt. Keep aside while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Slice the inner part of the stem of lemon grass very finely, and keep aside. Do the same with the green chillies or green pepper.
