    เอาปลาร้ามั้ยคะ - would you like fermented fish in your som tam......



    Papaya Salad or Som Tam (ส้มตำ)

    Ao plara mai ka? - Pla Ra (ปลาร้า) fermented fish sauce, popular in the North East of Thailand. Made by combining fish, salt, and roasted rice, left fermenting in a pot for a few months. The dish also traditionally contains Poo Kem (ปูเค็ม) salted field crabs.

    As eaten in Laos and Isaan, the dish is quite spicy and sour. The Central Thai or Bangkok version tends to be a bit milder and sweeter, and often contains crushed peanuts and dried shrimp but less likely to have Pla Ra or Poo Kem. Some Thai people in the west add carrot as well as green papaya and this sweetens the dish as well as padding out the papaya which tends to be expensive in UK.

    I always eat my Steak without any Sauce because I want the Taste of the Steak and not the Sauce, otherwise I could as well eat some Bread with the Sauce would taste the same and is much cheaper.
