Raw Papaya thoran

I did mention in some previous blogs about the goods that my MIL sent, when my hubby visited home couple of weeks back. That included a big raw papaya. So decided to make some thoran out of it, which my whole family enjoyed.


Raw papaya (peeled and grated) - about 4 cups (I just pulsed it couple of times in my mini chopper)
Small onion - about 8 (you can use big onion too)
Green chilly - 2, slit lengthwise
Garlic - 1 clove, chopped or crushed
Grated coconut - about 1.5 cups
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 1 tbsp


1. Grate the papaya and mix it with all other ingredients except mustard seeds and oil. Mix it gently, but thorughly with hand. Let it sit for about 10 min.
2. Heat a kadai and add oil. When the oil is hot enough, splutter the mustard seeds.
3. Add the papaya - coconut mixture into this and give a thorough mix.
4. Sprinkle some water, cover with lid and let it cook for about 8 min. Stir in between.
5. Check for salt.
6. Once the papaya is cooked, remove the lid and cook it for couple of minutes more, just to ensure that thoran is somewhat dry.
