KROY YAK KIN KHRAO TAM MAK HOUNG…
You want to give a bit of spice in your life?
You want to discover a Southeast asian country
I offer you to go in Laos and Thaïland by eating TAM MAK HOUNG or SOM TAM. (In english, papaya salad).
At first, as we are living in the north of the France, put your heating as warm as you can.
Secondly, wear thaï trousers and a docker (a « marcel » in french).
Then, buy all ingredients you need:
- 1 green papaya
- 1 lime
- tomatoes ( cherry tomatoes are better)
- thaï chili peppers
- 2 carotts
- pah dek (fish sauce)
- nam pah (squid sauce)
- you can have dried shrimp, yard longbeans
- and peanuts too.
FOR TWO PEOPLE:
1 / Cut in two the papaya, you peel half of it and you grate it.
2 / Peel and grate two carotts.
3 / In a mortar, put chili peppers (as much as you want, but I think that 2 or 3 is enought), a clove of garlic and one little spoon of glutamate. Add some carotts and papaya and mix all together.
4 / Put all the papaya and carotts in the mortar, Press the lime into, add tomatoes, one spoon of squid sauce, 2 or 3 spoons of fish sauce and mix.
Do not hesitate to enjoy the dish and to add some more of the ingredients. (lime, pah dek,…)
5 / If you want to cook like thaï people, you can add dried shrimp, peanuts and yard longbeans too.
6 / Eat this delicious meat with sticky or stime rice.
