Recipe for Burma-style chicken salad

Serves 2

Burmese cooks are apt to make a large quantity of shallot oil at a time, yielding lots of fried shallots and oil to use in other recipes. Chickpea flour, or “gram flour,” is at many Asian markets. It’s an optional ingredient for this recipe, but use it if you can; it confers unforgettable texture and nutty overtones.
