Tum Tang Khai Tom (Cucumber Salad with Boiled Egg)

{{totalReview}}
Cucumber Salad is a dish from Isan, the north-east region of Thailand that has ingredients and flavors similar to Thai papaya salad but uses chopped cucumber rather than chopped papaya and a special seasoning of shrimp paste. This dish is usually paired with boiled eggs because it helps reduce the salty taste and provide a mellower flavor. Its low calorie content makes this dish a good choice as a weight loss food.

Directions

  1. Prepare the cucumber salad

    • Place the red chilies and garlic in a mortar then pound until rough.

    • Add the palm sugar, fish sauce and shrimp paste into the prepared mortar, and use the pestle to gently mash until the ingredients are completely blended.

    • Add chopped cherry tomatoes and long beans into the mortar, then the lime juice. Use a spoon or ladle to mix all the ingredients together.

    • Add chopped cucumber into the mortar and mix with all ingredients well.

    If you want a similar aroma to papaya salad, substitute shrimp paste with fermented fish sauce for seasoning.

  2. Boil the eggs

    • Pour 100 ml. of water into a saucepan to boil the eggs. Then add ½ teaspoon of salt and the eggs.

    • Place the saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Boil until the eggs are hard boiled (approx. about 10 minutes).

    • Remove the boiled eggs from the saucepan, soak in a bowl of water and wait for the eggs to cool.

    • Remove the shells, cut in half and set aside.

    Soaking the eggs in cold water after they are boiled makes them easier to peel.
