Thai Salad with Raw Papaya

BM # 26    Day 2

We have a whole lot of Papaya trees all around the garden.Normally we do not pluck them till they are ripe, it’s only when a papaya falls from the tree or I feel like making a Thai salad that I pluck it raw. This Thai salad has a sweet, tangy, spicy and crunchy flavor and I am sure you will love it. It's one of the most relished salad in our family. So here is a Thai salad for the  second day of this week's BM.

3 cups raw papaya, grated
½ cup carrots, grated
½ tbsp chopped green chilly
½ cup crushed peanuts
2 tbsp brown sugar / regular sugar
1 tbsp tamarind
1 tsp chilly powder
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste
Combine all ingredients and toss well.
Serve chilled.



After making this salad it is best to let it be in the refrigerator for at least an hour,so that the flavors infuse.
