Green Papaya Salad – Som Tam

Had to shop at our local asian shop and I found a green papaya… inspiration!


1 green papaya – grated

some cherry tomatoes

2 long string bean

some crashed peanuts

2 garlic cloves

2 chillies

1 lime (juice)

2 tablespoons fish sauce

1 spoon tamarind sauce

1.5 spoons palm sugar.

In a mortar put the garlic, the chopped chillies, fish sauce, tamarind sauce, the palm sugar and the lime juice.

Grind until all flavours are well mixed. Add the tomatoes, crush the a little and put the mix on the grated papaya.

Mix well and wait at least half an hour before serving.
