THAI PAPAYA SALAD RECIPE

THAI PAPAYA SALAD RECIPE 

A side dish normally eaten with rice and fried or roast beef

Ingredients
*       3 cups julienned semi ripe papaya as in photo
*       3 long beans –cut into 3cm (1 inch) length.
*       1 garlic- minced
*       2 fresh red or green chili (to taste)- chiffanade  (paper  thin slices)
*       2 tablespoons ground roasted peanuts
*       1 tablespoon palm sugar (jaggery)- chiffanade
*       2 tablespoons lime juice
*       1 1/2 tablespoon Thai fish sauce (nam pla)
*       1 tablespoon chopped dried shrimps

The way to do it
  1. Cut papaya in half (lengthwise) remove seeds, peel off skin and wash clean. Using a sharp knife, julienned the papaya ( should not be too long but  not too thin either).
  2. Boil some water in a pot (just about enough to submerge the papaya). Once boil, add in papaya . When just about crisp tender, immediatety turn off fire and drain away water, using a strainer. Ensure pieces not broken.
  3. Blend sugar, lime juice, fish sauce and dried shrimp, peanuts and chili .. Add the julienned        papaya and mix well. Marinate half hour before serving.
  1. Dish should taste sweet, sour, and a little bit salty, so you may need to add more of certain ingredients to suit your taste buds. Serve with rice as side dish. I would love to add  some crushed black pepper onto it....yummy

    Thank you both for coming over and putting sweet comments. Actually the Thai's had their papaya in an almost raw state- just a quick dip in boiling water like blanching.

  25. Hi Wan, to some, cooking is a chore, to some, duty. But with you, it's love.
    The presentation, the display brings out the artist in you....
    and so, just looking at this dish we know we will see rainbows when the first spoon touches our lips.
    Have fun and keep a song in your heart.
    Lee.
