Papaya Parippu Curry

In our native we have so many papaya trees. So now and then my MIL makes this curry. I rarely get raw papayas here. This time when I saw a raw papaya in market, I immediately bought it and made this curry. This curry will be a good combination with rice and some thoran.

Raw papaya - 200 grams
Toor dal - 75 grams
Coconut (grated) - 75 grams
Cumin seeds – 3 grams
green chillies - 2 nos
garlic - 3 pods
tomatoes - 25 grams
salt and turmeric powder - to taste

To temper:
Oil – 10 grams
Mustard – 5 grams
Curry leaves - few


  • Soak the toor dal for 30 minutes.
  • Clean the papaya, discard the seeds and cut it into cubes.
  • Slit the green chillies and chop the tomatoes.
  • Pressure cook the toor dal, chopped papaya, tomatoes, green chillies with salt and turmeric powder.
  • Pressure cook for just one whistle. Since we have soaked the toor dal, it will get cooked fast.
  • Grind the coconut, cumin seeds and garlics by adding little water into a smooth paste.
  • Open the pressure cooker, Add the grinded coconut paste, mix well and boil the gravy. Check for salt.
  • In a kadai, pour oil and add mustard. Once mustard splutters, add curry leaves and add the same to the gravy

Papaya Parippu Curry is ready!!
