I have a strange relation with papaya . I love it and at the same time hate it . It is the raw papaya that I love , the ripe one has to be sweet , then only it gets my love , else can’t bear .

 

While buying veggies I picked this raw papaya to make my favorite Thai Papaya Salad . I couldn’t use it right away , so when I peeled the papaya , it was no longer raw , it was not sweet either . I really didn’t know what to do with it !

 

Since I had my prep work done for the salad I simply dumped everything in the mixy, yes even the papaya ! Gave it a quick blitz and my chutney was ready .

 

Trust me it had the same taste as of Thai salad , just that I made it spicy as I served it with Varagu Arisi Idlis , but the chutney can be served with Dosa’s or pakoras or eat spoonfuls of it .
This is my Day 1 post for the Special Theme.

  1. That is an awesome spin Vaishali! We love both the ripe and unripe papayas out here…With the same ingredients I made sabji except that the papaya is grated.

  2. I am funny with papaya also – I like green papaya as in Thai green papaya salad but I don’t like ripe papaya because of the mouthfeel – it has a dry aftertaste I don’t like same with persimmon however I like things flavored with ripe papaya as in juice, ice cream, jam, etc. However, this chutney sounds amazing!
