What do you make with papaya?

Aayi’s Recipes is becoming a big learning experience for me. I learn a lot from the comments by my readers. Also, when some recipe request is put here, I try my best to find the recipe, in that way I learn a lot of new recipes. I am very very greatful to you for all the support.

I thought it would be better if I make it more interactive. So every now and then I am going to ask you to comment with suggestions and your ideas so that we both learn and widen our culinary skills. Here is my first question or rather doubt…

I got a beautiful papaya from my last weekend shopping spree. It looked yellow from outside and I hoped that it might be ripe and juicy like the ones we get in India. When I tasted it, it was somewhere in between ripe and unripe. It was very hard and nothing like soft ones that we get in India and had kind of bland taste. There is absolutely no question of eating it as it is. I can’t use it in curries because it is not completely unripe. I know few recipes like halwa, burfi, milkshake, jam, holige with it. But I want to know if any of you know any other recipes. If you know, please comment here.

Thanks in advance.
