Thai-style Papaya Salad

S chopped off her papaya tree .... and brought the green unripe fruits to give away. Of course, I gladly took one to make my favourite papaya salad. Today's salad was superb! Fiery spicy, sweet and tangy, and so appetising.

Looking good eh?

Two years ago at Krabi, I bought papaya salad from a street vendor. I observed her as she assembled the salad ... and it looked pretty simple. I was certain that I could replicate it at home. So what went into my salad today ....

Into my mortar were 2 cloves of garlic, 2 cili padi, 1 Tbsp palm sugar, 1 Tbsp fish sauce, 2 Tbsp lime, 1 Tbsp dried shrimp. I wedged and then crushed the tomatoes in the mortar, together with the long beans. Then I tossed my shredded papaya together with the rest of the ingredients and they were ready to eat. It was yummy. I loved it. :))
