Raw papaya curry

Papaya is a great source of Vitamin A, B, C. The unripe/Green Papaya is a stomachic and digestive. This is prescribed in stomach troubles, jaundice, gastritis and liver disorders. Green papaya may increase nutrient absorption and help to create a healthier intestinal tract. Green papaya has also been used for over acidity or borderline ulcers as less stomach acid is required for digestion when abundant enzymes are ingested.

Thoughts on “Raw papaya curry

  1. Hey there, you mention raw papaya curry…but i see that u have cooked it…shouldnt the name be something else? as its misleading…. Although i loved the recipe and snap is great. Great blog as well.

    • Hi Shine,

      Thanks for your comment and suggestion. The recipe is cooked from Unriped Papaya, so the name. If its causing confusion/misleading..will try to rename it.
      Thx again…
