Heat a wok and add the chicken without oil. Stir-fry until the pink color is gone. Set aside. Slice the green onion, crosswise into pieces about ⅛ inch thick and add to the chicken. Peel the red onion and remove the root portion. Slice vertically into paper thin strips and add to chicken.
Heat a small skillet and roast the kah without oil until it's light golden. Grind it to a powder in a blender or grinder and add to chicken. Add the fish sauce, lime juice, roasted chiles, toasted rice and mint leaves. Stir well.
Place a single layer of lettuce or cabbage leaves on a serving platter and arrange the salad on top of them. Garnish with fresh red chile "flowers".
