Som Tam Hula Mai. A perfect fresh dish for a sunny day this is like a papaya salad but with mixed fruit for an extra sweetness. This was featured in Chiang Mai's City Life magazine as a recipe for an “End of the World” Party in December 2012.
300g Mixed fruit, any hard fruit can be used, like you would have with museli although not banana as that is too soft, cut into bite-sized pieces.
Red seedless grapes
The main ingredients are as follows:
10-15 Cherry tomatoes
Handful fresh long beans raw and cut into 1 inch pieces
7 Cloves small Thai garlic or around 2 big cloves of garlic
3 Small red birds eye chili
1tbsp Lime juice
3tbsp Roasted peanuts
3tbsp Tamarind sauce
1tbsp Soy sauce
In a pestle and mortar pound the garlic and chili,
Add the beans and 2tbsp roasted peanuts just pounding enough to break the ingredients up a little.
Add the tomatoes and pound gently to squish them a little, then add the tamarind sauce, lime juice and soy sauce.
Mix well and then add all the fruit, gently mixing.
Serve with green leaves and sprinkle with 1tbsp roasted peanut
NB for those with a peanut allergy they can be replaced with cashew nuts.
