Vietnam's green rice paddies come home in this fresh, good looking, easy meal with meat, rice and fresh veggies. I've used chicken keema but you can use any other kind of keema and if you can't find lettuce, just use the most tender leaves of cabbage.
Verry good. Will make for Diwali also. - 13 Oct 2010
This is awesome, fun, and healthy! The only change I made was that instead of making the meatballs, I simply browned and crumbled the meat in a frying pan, drained the fat, then added the soy, garlic and ginger and sautéed for another 2 minutes. We ran out of lettuce near the end, so we wrapped some of the rolls in rice paper wrappers, which was also delicious (and easier and less messy to eat). Next time I think that we will wrap them all in rice paper, and add shredded lettuce to the rolls. A must try! - 06 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great recipe! Instead of making meatballs, I browned the ground beef, added 1 cup of the already cooked rice and poured the sauce over the meat and rice. I also added about a teaspoon of hot chili oil for a little kick. I have eight children and they all loved it. The hot meat mixture in the cool lettuce leaves is wonderful! - 13 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
