Whole Wheat Som Tam Bread

Whole Wheat Som Tam Bread - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
This inspiration of flavours originated from our fondness for Som Tam, a Thai salad. It is a popular dish / salad in Thailand. Me and my kids (especially my elder one) really love the blend of flavours... Sweet, Spicy, Tangy..it has all in One Single Dish. So I just tried creating a Bread with these flavours. Its not an Yeasted Bread. It has a texture of Banana Bread but with Raw Papaya and other infusions. I have tried to include most of the ingredients of the salad in this bread and the outcome is amazing. Serve it with some Maple syrup / Butter / Jam. Its yum.
