Papaya Salad – Som Tam
This week I feel like eating sour spicy food so let’s make Papaya Salad! This classic Thai papaya salad has such a healthy, rich flavor and requires only few main ingredients:
– fish sauce
– Thai chilis
– dry shrimps
Papaya Salad called “Som Tam” in Thai language, is an iconic dish of Thai Cuisine. Its usually made with unripe papaya, but sometime I used green mango, or even granny smith apples instead. It’s just important to get that crunchy base for the dish.
Som tam is popular throughout the entire country of Thailand, although there are several variations that are typically found in certain areas. Usually it’s eaten with sticky rice and grilled chicken. And som tam is a perfect choice for a meal for person who wants diet like me 🙂
