How to make Papaya Chutney

  1. In a pan over medium heat, add oil. When the oil has heated a little, splutter mustard seeds and add asafetida.
  2. Add chopped green chilies and sauté for 30 seconds, followed by grated papaya and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine and let cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Add a splash of water and turmeric powder and mix again. Turn the heat to low and cook covered for 4 to 5 minutes (the papaya should be tender). Keep stirring occasionally to prevent the papaya from sticking to the pan.
  4. Transfer the papaya chutney to a serving bowl and enjoy!
