VAALI PAPAYA AMBAT


WHAT YOU NEED:

Papaya - 1 small, raw or ripe, peeled, deseeded and cut in cubes

Coconut gratings - 1/2 cup

Red chilli, dried - 4-5 roasted in little oil

PRESSURE COOKED VAALI AND PAPAYA CUBES

VAALI /INDIAN SPINACH WITH PAPAYA

HOW TO MAKE :

Wash vaali well and chop. Cut the stems in 3 inches long.

Now pressure cook vaali and raw papaya cubes. Normally raw papaya is used in the curry, here I used ripe papaya so I did not pressure cook ripe papaya. I added papaya along with masala and did not add jaagery too because papaya is already sweet.

Grind coconut, red chilly and tamarind to a fine paste.

Add ground paste to the cooked Vaali and raw papaya. Add jaggery and some water and boil for few minutes.

Heat 2-3 tsp of coconut oil. Add onion and fry till they are golden brown.

Add this seasoning over the Vaali Papaya Ambat.

Serve Vaali Papaya Ambat as a side dish.
