Peel the skin off the papaya, cut in half and scrape out the seeds
Grate the papaya with a Julienne peeler
Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl. The sauce should be sweet, sour and salty
Pound the Chilli and garlic in the pestle and mortar, then add the beans and dried prawns if using and bruise then add the papaya, tomatoes, and peanuts.
Pour in the sauce.
With a large spoon in one hand and the pestle in the other (this may take some practice!) scoop and pound until everything is well combined and the juice of the tomatoes has made it’s way into the dressing.
Scoop onto a plate, making sure you get all that lovely dressing.
Serve With absolutely anything or just eat it on its own!
