2) Wrap each piece of tuna in a piece of pandanus leaf. Thread onto wooden skewer. Deep-fry the tuna skewers in plenty of vegetable oil for about 10 seconds.
For the dipping sauce:
1) Mix all the ingredients together and simmer over low heat until it thickens. Allow to cool.
For the condiments:
1) Unwrap the tuna pieces. Place each on a betel nut leaf. Put a little bit of each condiment on the tuna. Pour on a teaspoon of sauce.
2) Eat in one mouthful.
Notes: Inspired by the traditional Mieng Kham, a traditional snack that is often sold in the street in Thailand, this dish is a great experience to share with friends, since the various elements encourage you to pass the condiments around and savour the combinations of flavours.
