Who eats snails? Who likes spicy? If you answered yes to both questions, then you should try this recipe. We made it as we needed something to eat with beer. The result is better than we expected. Let see how to cook it.

For salad dressing


1. Boil water in a huge pot, add galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and salt. Then add snail. Cook with high heat about 15 minutes. Then take out only snails from the pot and let is cool down in a big bowl.

2. Bring a mortar and pestle, add chili, garlic, sugar, MSG, shrimp paste (kapi). Pound roughly.
