Ingredients

How to make it

  • Prepare the ingredients as indicated. Make tamarind juice by starting with 1 Tbs. of compressed tamarind in 1/3 cup of warm water. Work the tamarind with your fingers to dissolve the soft fruit; gather up remaining undissolvable pulp, squeeze to extract juice and discard.
  • Using a large clay mortar with a wooden pestle, pound the garlic and chillies to a paste. Add the long beans and pound to bruise. Follow with the green papaya and carrot. Stir well with a spoon and pound to bruise the vegetables so that they absorb the heat and flavor of the chillies and garlic.
  • Add the tamarind or lime juice, fish sauce and palm sugar. Stir and pound a bit more to blend the vegetables with the flavorings and seasonings. Taste and adjust flavors to the desired hot-sour-sweet-and-salty combination. Then add the tomato pieces and if like crab also added , stir and bruise lightly to blend in with the rest of the salad. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with peanuts if desire. Serves 6-8 with assort of lettuce.
