Papaya Salad (Kerabu Betik)

It's my first time making a kerabu dish. I'm using the raw papaya freshly plucked from in law's back yard to make this papaya salad. The process is really simple and the outcome is quite impressive. The combination of sweet, sour and spicy online will get you excited. It's a good appetiser to kick start a meal.

Papaya Salad

Ingredients:

1/4 of unripe papaya, peeled, seeded and shredded
1 bunga kantan, finely chopped
handful of mint leaves, coarsely chopped
some bird's eye chilies, chopped
5 kalamansi, juiced (adjust to your own liking)
pinch of salt
brown sugar to taste

Method:
Mix all the ingredients and keep it cool in fridge before serving.
