    Makes: about 200ml


    1 ripe papaya, peeled, halved, deseeded and roughly chopped
    2 red chillies, roughly chopped (deseeded, if liked)
    2 shallots, chopped
    4 tbsp Chinese rice vinegar
    5 tbsp lime juice (about 4 limes)
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    15g fresh root ginger, finely grated
