  • 8 bao buns warmed

  • Set up your Kenwood multipro with the grater attachment and grate cabbage, carrot and apple. (Alternatively grate or finely chop these ingredients by hand.) Pour into a bowl and mix all remaining slaw ingredients together.
  • Load each bao bun with slaw, pieces of chicken karaage and a drizzle of Japanese mayonnaise. Yum!
