Raw Papaya Dry Curry

Raw Papaya dry curry is a side dish. It is mild, yummy and good for health.

I got this papaya from my neighbour who has papaya plants and they have space for growing papaya and banana plants.
As neighbours the lady of the home gives us Papaya and banana stems at times. So fresh and good Papaya is raw this time and I thought of preparing dry curry this time.
It is one of the simple,e easy, quick and healthy curry goes well with all the Indian Main dishes.

Let us see the recipe Now :
I Washed and cut papaya into small pieces. Then seasoned with mustard, jeera, slit green chilly and curry leaves. Added the pieces, stirred nicely. Added some water and cooked on medium flame.
