Christopher columbus called the papaya as the fruit of the angels when he noticed how strong the caribbean natives were when they eat the fruit.
Papayas are consumed eithre ripe or green. You may be wondering which of these two is better in terms of improving health.The truth is both have almost similar nutritional benefits.
Ripen papaya are anti inflammatory , rich in antioxidants , rich in fiber ,rich in vitamin A and good for anti digestive problems.
When I got ripen papaya from my garden we had in salad, make halwa and coconut ladoos.
Also made this recipe which is easy and quick. Its true that papaya doesn’t go with any dairy product. so I put the papaya when the custard is cool and ready for serve.
- Milk – 2 cups
- cubes – ½ cup
- rice flour – 2 tbsp
- sugar – 3 tbsp
METHOD OF PREPARATION ::
- Boil milk in a heavy bottom pan.
- When milk is warm take 1/4th cup of milk out and keep aside.
- Boil the remaining milk with sugar and boil for 5-6 minute in low flame.
- In warm milk add the rice flour and mix well avoiding lumps.
- mix it gradually with boiling milk while stirring continuously.
- Boil this mixture and stir continuously so that it won’t stick .
- Boil for 5 minutes more. The custard will thicken .
- Switch off the flame and pour into a
bowl and cool it.
- At the time of serving add cubed papaya and serve immediately.
- At the time of boiling stirring is very important. Burnt custard will not taste good.
- Instead of papaya you can use any fruit of your choice or mix fruit can also be used.
- Don’t boil the custard for long time .too thick custard will neither look nor taste good.
