Papeeta Aur Moongfali Ki Sookhi Sabzi - पपीता और मूंगफली की सूखी सब्जी (Raw Papaya with Peanuts Fry)

Hello Friends,


This is a very simply fry and a slight twist from my mom's just raw papaya fry. If you have never cooked raw papaya before, start with this,  you will instantly love it :)


Papeeta Aur Moongfali Ki Sookhi Sabzi - पपीता और मूंगफली की सूखी सब्जी (Raw Papaya with Peanuts Fry)


Ingredients
Hara Papeeta (Raw Papapya) - 2 cups
Onion - 1 cup, finely chopped
Roasted Peanuts - 2/3 cup, coarsely ground
Haldi (Turmeric Powder) - 1/2 tsp
Lal Mirch (Red Chili Powder) - 1 tsp
Olive Oil (or any other oil) - 1.5 tbsp
Rai (Mustard Seeds) - 1 tsp
Jeera (Cumin Seeds) - 1 tsp
Meetha Neema (Curry Leaves) - 4-5 (optional)
Heeng (Asafoetida) - 1 pinch
Salt - as per taste
Preparation

  • Take a non-stick pan (it is better with non-stick) and heat oil in it.
  • Add cumin and mustard seeds along with curry leaves and asafoetida and let the seeds splutter.
  • Add finely chopped onions and let then fry till translucent.
  • Add raw papaya pieces (cut them all in small 1/2-1 inch cubes like you see in my picture) and all spice powders and mix well.
  • Cover and cook till papaya is tender (green papaya takes a lot of time to cook, so be patient and sprinkle little water from time to time, if needed).
  • Once it is cooked, remove the lid and stir fry it for about 3-4 min.
  • Now, sprinkle the ground peanut and stir fry for another 3-4 min and you are done :)

Serving
Serve it with hot chapati/paratha or warm rice and it will be tasty in both the cases.


That's all for now. Take care till next post.

We cook papaya in a simple raw stir fry with a tempering of mustard and red chillies. Just saw another version of papaya subzi at Sangeeta's too. The peanut version here is new for me; must be delish with rice!
