Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bok l'hong is the Khmer version of a dish popularly known in English as papaya salad. The word l'hong means papaya in Khmer. The word bok refers to the ingredients being beaten with a mortar and pestle. Despite the use of papaya, which one may think of as sweet, this salad is actually savoury. When not yet ripe, papaya has a slightly tangy flavor. The texture is crisp and firm, sometimes to the point of crunchiness. It is this that allows the fruit to withstand being beaten in the mortar.show more
