Step 1: Prepare Ingredients

  • Green papaya: you use the tip of a knife to make a few incisions on the left body and then soak it in a basin of water to get all the plastic out. Next, wash and peel, cut out and remove the seeds, cut off the bitter pulp and grate into long fibers. When you shave, you immediately soak in diluted salt water, add a few ice cubes to make the papaya white and crispy.
  • Carrots are washed, peeled, grated like papaya and then soaked together.
  • Lettuce, basil picked, washed, chopped.
  • Crushed or lightly roasted peanuts.
  • Garlic peeled, smashed and minced.
  • Wash the peppers, remove the seeds and chop finely.
  • Cut the lemon in half, squeeze the juice, filter out the seeds.
