Papaya KadagPuli

Papaya KadagPuli is an iyengar dish. When we buy the Papaya for this dish we should pick one which is not ripe. This is so that the fruit can be cooked. Try this, It has got a very good taste sweet cum sour mixed with masala. I loved it when my mom made this. Usually kadag - puli dish is made using other vegetables like okra(bhendi), Beetroot, Cucumber etc . Making this with Papaya Fruit gives this recipe a very unique taste.

  • Papaya - 2 cups, chopped
  • Curry leaves 2 to 3
  • Tamarind paste / juice - 1 tsp
  • Jaggery to taste
Masala Ingredients
  • Coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Turmeric powder - A pinch
  • Hing / Asafoetida
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • Red chillies - 2 or 3 (acc to taste)
  • Dalia / Roasted chana / Hurkadale - 3 tsp
  • Take a pan add 1/2 cup of water and add papaya pieces and boil it till cooked well
  • Grind the masala using a bit of water make a thick paste
  • Add into cooked papaya and bring to boil
  • Add salt to taste and add curry leaves, Stir well
  • Add tamarind, jaggery stir well ... kadag puli becomes medium thick.
