SOMTAM......AROI CHIN CHIN

Salam,

I love this special salad from Thailand. When I was small, our Thai neighbour taught us this Papaya Salad. Since then, we always try to prepare this salad especially when we can find all the ingredients. The neighbour that we called "CIk Leha" is a very soft-spoken and kind lady. I also learned some words and phrases in Thai language from her.

If some of you don't know what is SOMTAM, why don't you read the explanation from WIKIPEDIA:

Som tam or som tum (Thai: ส้มตำ, pronounced [sôm tam]) also known as tam bak hung (Isan: ตำบักหุ่ง, pronounced [tam bàk hùŋ]) is a spicy salad made from shredded unripened papaya. Som tam is similar to the Laotian dish tam mak hoong and the Cambodian dish bok l'hong.

The picture of the dish? Okay, here they are:


The recipe? Well, maybe next time I can share the recipe that I've learned from my neighbour. But, I just want to introduce to those who are not familiar with this dish. I had eaten this salad today when we went to GIANT to buy our weekly grocery. I bought it from a temporary thai stall inside GIANT. It's for the special Thai Festival & Food promotion there.
