Papaya-Potato Curry

papaya curry
Papaya is one of my favorite fruits. In Punjab, we eat it primarily as a fruit. Rarely do we use it as a vegetable. My mom often makes raw papaya parantha, which tastes yum.

Since papaya is full of health, with its antioxidant content, I decided to use it for a vegetable curry.














Ingredients
1/2 papaya
2 potatoes
2-3 onions
7-8 garlic cloves
1 small ginger piece
1 Tomato
1 green chilly
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp wheat flour
3 tbsp milk
garam masala
1 bay leaf
salt, turmeric, water
fresh coriander leaves

papaya potato curry
Process

  1. Cut papaya into small pieces.
  2. Boil with two whistles.
  3. Keep aside
  4. Cut potatoes into equal size.
  5. Set aside.
  6. Grind onions, ginger, garlic, chilly, and tomato into fine paste.
  7. You may grind or puree tomato separately.
  8. Heat oil.
  9. Drop a bay leaf.
  10. Then add the ground onion masala.
  11. Stir fry.
  12. Let the masala fry. You may add little water to speed up the frying process. I do this often.
  13. When the raw smell of masala is gone, add salt. Fry.
  14. Add turmeric. Stir well. Let the masala cook.
  15. Add garam masala.
  16. Next drop potatoes into the masala.
  17. Stir fry and then keep it covered.
  18. Cook & cover on slow flame for 5 mins.
  19. Add papaya and fry for a minute. Now add little water.
  20. Cook & cover on low flame for 5 minutes.
  21. Meanwhile, take wheat flour and milk. Mix both together. 
  22. Add this milk-wheat mixture to the boiling curry.
  23. Mix well and let it cook for 1-2 minutes.
  24. Add water.
  25. Cook & cover for 5-10 minutes or until done.
  26. Garnish with coriander leaves. Enjoy this papaya curry with rice or roti.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.

In fact, when I did not have a hand whisk, I would use a spoon. I do have an electric whisk, but I a…
