Turmeric Caramel Sauce
1 tbsp Turmeric Paste
250 g palm sugar
2 tbsp fish sauce
5 tbsp lime juice
1 sick lemongrass
3 kaffir lime leaves
3 tbsp water
Place all ingredients in a small pot and boil for 6 minutes on high. Remove from heat and strain out the lemongrass and lime leaf. Put sauce aside.
Take 500g cooked pork belly and cut into cubes. Cook these cubes over a flat grill or frying pan until crispy and well browned. Transfer to a serving bowl and spoon over as much of the caramel as you like.
To serve, garnish with sesame seeds, sliced red chilli and spring onion.
