  2. Dear Sangeetha
    I love Papaya curry , even in Mutton Papaya curry.
    This recipe is different from the normal Bong style vege curry ( no onion) . WIll try this.
    I used to wonder what to do , when a green papaya used to turn semi ripe in the fridge and through it.
    I think I must cook it in future.
