Raw red curry. The ingredients that is. Thai Ginseng, two big dried chilli's (the red chilli's make it a red curry), three shallots, two cloves of garlic, lemon grass and a kaffier lime leaf. All finely chopped and placed into a mortar ready for pounding.
The paste after arm breaking pounding. I had to pound for about 10 minutes. The most physical activity for the whole day.
Green pawpaw salad. Divinely spicy and fresh. Again, everything into the mortar.
