A light stir-fry with raw papaya, a tropical favourite.


  • 1 medium-sized raw papaya
  • A generous pinch of turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp (coconut) oil
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • 6 shallots, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 dry red chillies, broken into halves
  • A few curry leaves


  1. Peel the papaya and cut into thin pieces. Boil in sufficient water along with turmeric and salt until the pieces are soft. Ideally, add about 1 cup water and add more if needed. This is better than having to drain excess water.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan and add all ingredients listed below oil. When the mustard seeds begin to pop and the shallots and garlic give out a nice flavour, add the cooked papaya. Stir-fry for another 5-6 mins and remove from fire.
