Raw Papaya with coconut

This vegetarian recipe is a very innovative, healthy and delicious dish made of rare combination of papaya and coconut. It was created by my mother and now I prepare it most often. I recommend this recipe strongly because of its taste.


500gms Raw papaya.
200 gms. grated coconut.
2 potatoes (diced).
3 slitted green chili.
2 bay leaves.
2 whole red chilis.
1 tsp fenugreek (methi)
1 tsp.turmeric powder.
1 tsp.cumin powder.
1 tsp.garam masala powder.
1 tsp. ghee.


1.Wash and peel off papaya and grate it. Fry Potato pieces and set aside.

2.Heat oil in a pan. Add 2 red chilis and methi seeds. When methi becomes brown black add grated coconut and slitted green chili and fry it until becomes golden. Now add grated papaya and saute for 5 minutes.

3. Add fried potatoes, turmeric powder, cumin powder, red chili powder and salt. Stir frequently and then cover it . Let it cook for 8 to 10 minutes on medium flame with stirring at regular interval.

4. open the lid ,add a tsp.of garam masala and a tsp. of sugar and stir fry in high flame for about 5 more minutes. Now add ghee and cover it and finally cook for a couple of minutes in low flame.
