Using a mortar and pestle , crush green chillis and garlics. To this add lime juice, fish sauce , yellow curry sauce and brown sugar, mix really well . Place your shredded papaya and carrots in a large salad bowl .Toss in fresh basil leaves.Right before you serve the salad, mix the dressing and then drizzle it over the salad ingredients, mixing well to combine. Top the salad with some chopped toasted peanuts.
