Avoid roasted peanut if you are on diet. I normally mix sliced carrot wiht papaya as it gives a beautiful color display and also good balance of taste. For those prefering very spicy taste, you can add 2 more chillies. However key ingredients; fish sauce, lime juice and palm sugar must be balanced. [I posted this recipe.]
