som tam salad.

Som tam salad is made with green pappya which is a very popular street food of Thailand.  Green pappaya salad is a spicy salad made from shredded raw papaya. Its one of the popular street food made with fish sauce. I have avoided the fish sauce and made this salad in vegetarian style. I learnt this recipe from my maid when i was living in Bangkok. Let us see how to make this spicy salad.

Preparation time approx. 10 minutes.

Ingredients.

  • 1 very small pappya. shredded in long size.
  • 1 carrot shredded
  • 2 long beans.
  • 4 spicy green chillies ( adjust according to your taste) I used Indian chillies.
  • 1/2 cup roasted ground nuts. ( I like more ground nuts. You can reduce the quantity a little.
  • 4 or 5 cheery tomatoes or de seeded tomatoes
  • 3 to 4  garlic pods
  • very little tamarind. If tomatoes are sour do not add this.
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce.
  • little jaggery or brown sugar.
  • salt to taste.
  • Chopped coriander leaves to garnish
