Sauce- Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, red chili paste, brown sugar, and lime juice in a food processor or blender. Puree to combine. While the motor is running, drizzle in the hot water to thin out the sauce, you may not need all of it. When sauce is completed, in a large bowl combine slaw mix with peanut sauce and toss well to coat. Set aside. Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high. To make the patties, combine the chicken, garlic, coconut milk, curry powder, season with salt and pepper. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and form 12 mini chicken patties (there will be two patties folded in a tortilla.) Place a skewer through the center of two patties. Repeat until all patties have been skewered. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to preference, 7-10 minutes on each side . During the last few minutes of cooking, place the tortillas on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly. To assemble the burgers, spread a generous amount of the asian slaw and peanut dressing inside the flour tortilla. Diners can eat the burgers off the stick and roll up the salad in the tortilla, or they can pull the skewer out, roll the whole burger up and eat it as well. Makes 6 burgers
