Papaya – 1
Crushed Dry red chilly-1 1/2 tsp
Small Onion (cheriya ulli)- 6
Curry leaves-1 string
Salt- to taste
Coconut Oil-1 tbsp
Grated Coconut- handful
Peel,deseed and cut the papaya into cubes..Here I used an unripe papaya which is going to ripe soon ..I selected this from fruit section as here in dubai never get such papayas in vegetable section..Too raw papaya won’t taste as good as this ..
Boil water in a kadai by adding salt..Put these papaya pieces in the water and cook till it done ..I never use cooker for this ..Sometimes papaya may over cook and that will spoil everything !!
Heat oil in a pan,add crushed onion and saute.When the colour began to change add crushed dry red chilly and curry leaves .Saute till the raw of the chilly goes.Now add grated coconut and stir for 2 minutes.Finally add cooked papaya and mix well..Stir well for few minutes and transfer into the serving plate ..
Its a good combination with kanji and rice ..
Hmmm…looks good! Great i always thought that ripe papaya’s are the only way to consume them
This dish spells flavor, anything with a curry leaf is must make for me!
