Thai new year (songkran festival) is almost the same as the tamil new year we celebrate in april..Similar to our custom of making Raw mango Pachadi, which includes all the 6 tastes, they prepare this Raw papaya salad, which also has all the 6 tastes, which means in the year ahead, we should face all situations with same mindset...During the songkran festival, they use to splash water upon each other.They also conduct water fights using containers of water and water guns...Some even hire elephants to splash water...It marks both spiritual and physical cleaning..and new beginnings..Do try and enjoy....I'm preparing this for the theme '3 festivals across globe' of BM#54 hosted by srivalli...also sending this papaya salad to Srivalli's Kids delight event-fruits in any form hosted by Harini...
|Lemon juice||3/4 tsp|
|Soy sauce||1/2 tsp|

Shred raw papaya using a shredder..Immerse it in ice cold water till use...In a mortar, take garlic and green chilli and pound it...
