Ingredients to make Veg Thai Papaya Salad (Without Pounding, No onion, No garlic)

  • 1 small green (firm, unripe) papaya, thinly chopped
  • 1 cup tomato slices
  • 1 cup red, yellow, green bell peppers, thinly chopped
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts or cashews (I have used masala peanuts which adds more spiciness)
  • 5 green beans (optional)
  • 1 fresh green chilli, sliced (seeds removed)
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp light-tasting vegetable oil (not olive oil)
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil

How to make Veg Thai Papaya Salad (Without Pounding, No onion, No garlic)

  1. First peel the green papaya, then use the largest grater you have (like what you would use to make scalloped potatoes) and grate the green fruit, rotating it as you go to avoid hitting the inner seeds. (If you don't have a grater, try the second method, which is the one they use in Thailand. Use a large, sharp knife.) First deeply score the flesh, then run your knife just under the surface to release beautiful shreds.
  2. Now get out your food chopper or processor and add the chilli, soya sauce, oil, lime juice and brown sugar. Process until the liquid turns out from the chilli. Slice the beans into segments and add them to the chopper or processor. Pulse to lightly chop and bruise the beans (in Thailand the beans are pounded to bruise them, but this method works just as well).
  3. Place the shredded papaya plus all the other vegetables in a large salad bowl, holding back some of the basil to garnish. Pour it over the dressing and beans and toss well. Finally add the nuts and toss again.
  4. Taste-test to tweak the salad to your taste. More chilli can be added for more spice. If too sour for your taste, sprinkle a little white sugar over your salad and toss to mix - the sugar will melt in a minute or two.
  5. Serve your salad as it is, or as a side dish to any Thai entree. If this is your main course, try serving like they do in Thailand, with a side of sticky rice.
