A very famous salad from the thai culinary repertoire, this is made using raw papayas, flavoured with tamarind and soya sauce and chilli powder. This is the perfect example of ‘simple yet delicious’ delicious food! peanuts are high in calories and fat, however it is a key ingredient that enhances the unique flavour of this salad, therefore i’ve added it in moderate amounts. It is important to wash and store the grated papaya refrigerated, wrapped in a muslin cloth. A blend of sweet and tangy flavours makes this salad a must-try. Tamarind and lemon juice impart tanginess whereas the sugar substitute balances this. What’s more, this salad is a real health booster, since raw papaya is rich in calcium, vitamin a and c!
