Kapplanga Thenga Aracha Curry/Green Papaya Curry


Kapplanga Thenga Aracha Curry/Green Papaya Curry

 Today's recipe is a humble green papaya charu curry.The chief ingredient is raw papaya and the curry base is a spiced coconut paste.Papaya is very common in Kerala and there are several recipes using green papaya.It is rich source nutrients and is widely known for its medicinal properties.My favorites is papaya thoran and this charu curry.It is a real comfort food and is served over rice. Have it with rice, vegetable thoran and pickle or spicy fish fry and it makes a perfect healthy meal.

Ingredients
Green papaya  cubed- 3 cup
Green chilly-4-5
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Salt to taste

To make the paste
Shredded Coconut- 1 cup
pearl onion- 4-5
(or a small piece of onion)
Garlic -2 cloves

For tempering
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Dry red chilly-2
Curry leaves- a few



Peel off the skin of the papaya and wash it under running water once again. Cut open the papaya and scrape off the seeds using a spoon. Now cut papaya into medium sized cubes. Cook this along with green chilly, turmeric,salt and a cup of water till it is done.
Make a fine paste of all the ingredients listed under 'to make paste' and add this into the cooked papaya. Adjust salt and also consistency by adding little water and simmer in medium flame for two minutes.Do not allow to boil,but make sure that the raw flavor disappears.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add curry leaves and dry red chilly and when it changes color pour over the curry and keep it covered till it is time to serve. Serve over rice.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy
