Meredith made this so I really can't add too much. I think she basically followed the directions. The idea is you take a bit of everything and roll it into a leaf and eat it in one bite


we bought leaves thatlooked like the cha-phlu (aka piper sarmentosum). However the first night we had it, I thought they tasted strange and instead skipped the leaf. Meredith didn't mind and tried it the again the next day. What was a bad tasting lead the first day turned into a horrible, gross taste the next.

Turns out, we bought Betel leaves, a major ingredient in Paan, a drug used like tobacco in Asia. To quote the linked Wikipedia article

Betel leaves are used as a stimulant, an antiseptic and a breath-freshener. Betel quid with tobacco is strongly carcinogenic

Thankfully we (a) ate very little and (b) didn't mix it with anything.

So next time, we will find the right leaves or use something else. Serious Eats usedChinese broccoli
