Papaya / Omakka Thoran

Papaya Thoran

Raw papaya holds a number of amazing health benefits. Packed with  vitamins, enzymes and phytonutrients. Raw papaya is also a rich source of magnesium, potassium and vitamins.Raw papaya contains a lot more active enzymes than the ripe fruit. It helps you to lose weight, improves digestion,prevents vitamin deficiency and helps beat diabetes.This thoran I have prepared with papaya and mung beans.It is more tasty , delicious and a good side dish for rice.

Ingredients

  • Raw papaya – 1, small
  • Mung bean,cooked – 1/2 cup
  • Grated Coconut – 1 cup
  • Green Chilly – 2
  • Garlic – 4
  • Turmeric  powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Shallots – 5
  • Dry Red Chilly – 2
  • Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Preparation

  1. Grind coconut, green chillies, garlic and turmeric powder to a coarse paste.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds and allow it to splutter. Add the sliced shallots,red chilly and fry until they soften. The coarse paste follows this.
  3. Add the chopped papaya and salt, cover and allow the papaya to cook. Stir in between.
  4. Add in the cooked mung beans, stir the mixture, cover and cook until all the moisture content evaporates.
  5. Finally  add curry leaves and switch off.
