male papaya upkari

male papaya plant bearing fruits for your view

i like its taste more than the female papaya..but lack of availabiity is a problem because the male papaya flowers rearly bear fruits..in kerala people cut the male papaya when they came to know that it is a male plant..its very sad..i think it is due to some superstitious fear..we konkanis prepare male papaya upkari(mezhukkupuratti)as it is our favourite side dish..you must also try this recipe if you get the papaya..once you had its taste you wont cut the plant any longer..here the recipe goes..

papaya-small 4
mustard-1 tsp
dry chilli flakes-3tsp
oil-1tab sp

wash the papaya well and cut into 4 vertically..dont peel the skin..slice the papaya as in pic..if the seeds are tender and white you can use it along with the slices..if they became black, throw away..heat oil in a wok add mustard,chilly flakes and salt..do not add water..cover with lid and let it cook on low flame..stir well in between..upkari is ready to serve..
                                                             enjoy cooking!
