    I live in Thailand and thrive on this stuff. We finally found an Asian supply store where we can get green papaya when visiting family in the States. This recipe is authentic. We usually eat it with more chilies. - 11/7/10

    So, if the recipe is authentic, why the bad rating?
    The amount of chillies would be a personal preference
    for the person making it.
