How to cook… Winged Bean Salad

Our Thai meal today didn’t need, of course, any cooking as it is a salad. It is Winged Bean Salad or “yum tua pu” in Thai. We actually bought all the ingredients at the local market and all we had to do is mix everything together! In the ingredients below, you can see fresh shrimp, hard-boiled egg, boiled chicken slices, fried garlic, chilli, a mixture of peanut and dried coconut meat and winged bean that has been scalded and cut into horizontal slices. The sauce in themiddle does vary. This one looks like it has tamarind juice, chilli paste, fish sauce, palm sugar and coconut milk.

To make, all you have to do is mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and add the sauce. Very simple to do as long as someone else has prepared all the ingredients for you.
