Sweet & Salty Fruit Dip (Nam Pla Waan) นำ้ปลาหวาน | Thai Recipes

1846 ratings | 67054 views
Sour fruits are no longer a bummer, but an opportunity to dip them in this sweet, salt, umami dipping sauce! In Thailand, we make this simple dipping sauce specifically for tart green mangoes, but it also works well with any tart, firm fruit you might have. Green apples, underripe strawberries, dry tart pineapple...you name it! If you're weirded out by the combination of fish sauce and fruit, I get it, Adam my camera man was very suspicious of it in the beginning too. But watch the video to the end and you'll see his reaction—he was pleasantly surprised, and I think you will be too! In fact, many other countries in South East Asia have some version of this funky sweet dip for fruits, that's how good it is! It's very easy and it will last in your fridge for months, so you can keep it for any time you need :) YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: Fruit Salad & Almond Jelly dessert https://youtu.be/2NstrZwNSqc JOIN US ON PATREON FOR BONUS CONTENT: https://www.patreon.com/pailinskitchen MY KITCHEN TOOLS & INGREDIENTS: https://kit.co/hotthaikitchen WRITTEN RECIPE: https://hot-thai-kitchen.com/nampla-waan MY COOKBOOK: https://hot-thai-kitchen.com/htk-cookbook/ CONNECT WITH ME! https://facebook.com/HotThaiKitchen https://instagram.com/HotThaiKitchen https://twitter.com/HotThaiKitchen https://www.pinterest.com/hotthaikitchen About Pai: Pailin “Pai” Chongchitnant is the author of the Hot Thai Kitchen cookbook, co-host of a Canadian TV series One World Kitchen on Gusto TV, and creator and host of the YouTube channel Pailin's Kitchen.

In Indonesia, we called this RUJAK!! And we just have to have them around 3 PM in the afternoon. The spicier the better. In some cities they just put in shrimp paste instead of fish sauce. But in Bali, they have the fish version. Best when you just use white sugar instaed of palm, and eat with with young mango. Super delicious!!

Now I want to harvest again our carabao mango. we still have the unripened one and just dip it with shrimp paste. Or buy a green mango (we call it indian mango). salivating while thinking about it.

I made this and brought it to my office as a treat. It went very well with celery sticks, french carrots, crowns of the broccoli, granny smith (of course) and the sour strawberries. Everybody loves it. They dipped their fingers into the sauce when the veggies were gone. Thank you!

Yesss!!!! Love the TV show saaapppp.... 👌
yuyus yoes (1 year ago)
In indonesia we have Rujak, but a bit different in dip sauce. For the sauce we needs * Palm sugar * shrimp paste * Salt * Chili * Roasted peanut * Tamarind syrup (adding step by step) We all mix it together, using traditional grinder made by stone. Make sure adding the tamarind sauce at the end, and do not grinds the peanut very soft, so you still can bite the nut
yuyus yoes (1 year ago)
Please try,,, usually the fruits are: tart manggo or young manggo, pineapple, yam, water apple. But very optional. Because you hard to find out those fruit outside southeast Asia

Anthony Subandi (1 year ago)
In Indonesia we call this rujak, but we also add crushed peanuts in the sauce. This looks great too!

We have a variation of this dip in Vietnam too, and I gotta say it goes so well with sour crunchy fruits. People commonly say women during their pregnancy adore this combo, I would say non-pregnant folks love them just as much lol
Bill Newton (1 year ago)
Besides melted chocolate I have never considered a dip for fruit. Thank you.
Irun Mon (1 year ago)
It's samiliar with rujak. Have you tried with star fruit? It's so good. Also some people like to add bengkoang but personally I don't like it. My mom likes almost ripe papaya and my sister likes chompoo or rose apple the most

This recipe has the umami-loaded shrimp paste, fish sauce and dried shrimp in it, of course it will taste good! If I'm not allergic to all of them I would have make it right away
Winter Storm (1 year ago)
I love this sauce with unriped mangos. Completely salivating. You have to get use to the strong smell and it is an acquired taste.

Come to think of it, why not? Europeans and Americans alike use sweet and savory fruit chutneys to accompany meats and so forth.
