  2. Stir-fry until heated through, but not crisp. Put in a mixing bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients except the assorted vegetables & lettuce.
  3. Mix thoroughly. Line a serving bowl with a layer of lettuce leaves & pour the saute over them. Serve surrounded by rice & assorted vegetables.
  4. Heat uncooked rice over moderate heat until golden, stirring to prevent burning.
  5. When the colour is uniform, remove from heat, cool & gring to a powder. It is best to use a mortar & pestle.
  6. Roast whole chilies, stems too, in a dry wok until they darken. Be careful that they do not burn. Cool. Remove stems & seeds. Grind.
