Green Papaya fry/oriyal/Raw Papaya fry

I was first introduced to green papaya by my atta(dad's cousin) who stayed in Kerala for 10 yrs.The other day when I saw it in the Mexican store I had to buy it.Got it home and then called my atta for the recipe.I made some changes to the original recipe to our taste.


1/2 raw green papaya peeled and cut into thin strips
3-4 green chillies slit vertically
2 tbsp grated fresh coconut
1tsp mustard seeds
1tsp jeera/cumin seeds
2 red chillies(torn)
1tbsp urad dal
1/2 tbsp chana dal
6-8 curry leaves
2 cloves of garlic or 1/2 tsp hing
A pinch of tumeric
Salt to taste
2tbsp oil

 Method :
 Half boil the papaya strips in water (I microwaved in water just enough to cover the strips ,a little salt and for 12 mins(also depends on the power of ur microwave)).Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds and jeera and when they splutter,add the dried red chilly, urad dal,chana dal and when dal starts to change color add the garlic or hing and curry leaves.Fry for a min.Now add green chillies,tumeric ,grated coconut and half boiled papaya strips add salt and cook covered till the papaya is done.Check for seasoning.Donot overcook.Serve hot with steamed rice and rasam or sambar.Enjoy!!!
