Stir in the turkey to the pan, stir-fry until turkey is cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Roasted rice powder can be bought in the store, but making it yourself is fun and easy. Take 3 to 4 tablespoons of jasmine rice and roast it in a dry pan. Keep stirring as the rice cooks. Once the rice is dark brown and fragrant, put it into a blender or food processor. Grind until a coarse powder is formed. Rice powder makes a great topping for Larb and any other salad
