Papaya Curry

While surfing the net for unusual recipes, I came across this recipe for Stir-Fried Green Papaya from an Indian woman named Barathy. Her recipe comes from Kerala in South India, where green papaya as a vegetable is not very commonly used.

I bought green papayas, but by the time I went to make this dish, they were starting to ripen (oh, those tropical fruits!) The result was a complex-tasting, but easy to make curry that included sweetness from the papaya, plus gorgeous color.

I love mistakes like this.
