Papaya cubes in Rice flour Custard



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



  • 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.



  1. At the time of boiling stirring is very important. Burnt custard will not taste good.
  2. Instead of papaya you can use any fruit of your choice or mix fruit can also be used.
  3. Don’t boil the custard for long time .too thick custard will neither look nor taste good.



Cooking is my passion.i love to play with myriad tastes of spices . I belong to a odiya family by birth but marriade to a bengoli person.the crash of cultures between two families induced me to cook innovatively so as to make everyone happy.

  1. Tried it. Though I burnt it slightly it was good both in taste and texture. I used apple in place of papaya. I was searching for a non oil easy fast recipe to substitute my dinner. It made it better. Thank you.

    1. While stirring u need to be very careful dear…if you are using apple then add some cinnamon powder …it ll enhance the taste..thank to u dear for trying and for the feedback
