Green Papaya Chutney
Green Papaya is great in salads, curries, and creole Ratatouille... It is super delicious. One excellent recipe for using green papaya is Green Papaya Chutney! It is delicious. Green Papaya Chutney is a really good side to curries. The crunch and cool it provides against the spiciness and creaminess of a curry balances out the whole experience. In Creole Cuisine, green papaya chutney is always on the menu, and always treated as a star! The best thing though is that it can replace the need for rice, for those who are intolerant or trying to reduce the intake of carbs, without compromising on the whole curry experience! I love it and will be having lots of it, hope you like it too :)
Grated green Papaya
2 cloves garlic
1 red onion, finely sliced
Juice of 2 limes
Salt & Black pepper to taste
Finely sliced Red Chilies
Grate the green papaya and sprinkle with salt. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes then squeeze all the water out, discard the water.
Separate the squeezed grated papaya on a tray, then sprinkle with black pepper and the juice of 2 limes.
Meanwhile Sweat the sliced onion in a little olive oil but do not brown.
Add the seasoned grated papaya and the sliced red chilies and toss to coat.
Cook on medium heat tossing until the papaya is slightly wilted. Serve next to creole curries.
Do give it a shot, as am sure you will love it :)
