Papaya Salad with Fried Noodle

Papaya Salad with Fried Noodle

Another dinner with Lao green papaya salad (Tam Maak Hoong). I made fried noodles or khua mie to go with the spicy salad. Fried noodle is usually served with green papaya salad in Laos when I was a little kid in Vientiane.

Khua Mie is something that I ate almost everyday during a lunch break at school in Vientiane. There were two to three ladies setting up food stalls selling the Fried Noodles on the street outside my school. One lady was my favorite because she always gave me an extra piece of chicken or pork blood cube.

  1. can you make papaya salad without a kook and sak? sorry i can’t spell lol..

  2. You could do that if you can make the dressing and then toss with the papaya like they do at a wedding. If you chop chili peppers rather than crushing them and being innovative in making your dressing without using the well known equipments.
