Raw papaya, quite contrary to the ripe ones, is quite crisp and has a unique taste, which lends itself well to salads, subzis and pickles.
Here, we have made a Sweet and Sour Raw Papaya Pickle by perking up the chopped and cooked raw papayas with a multitude of ingredients, including spices, tamarind and jaggery.
This chatpata pickle is sweet, sour and spicy, perfect to have with any paratha, or with a bowl of hot rice and dal. This will stay good in the refrigerator for up to a month. So, you can keep some handy and relish with any meal.
