|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.
