Raw Papaya Gravy | Amruta Bhanda dry recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Papaya is known as Amruta Bhanda in odia and is one of the most common vegetable used in their cuisine. Raw Papaya is cooked in onion tomato curry similar to the way we make potatoes. This month I explored Odisha Cusine. Odia Cuisine is very simple as they use less oil as well as less spicy but more flavorful. They use Panch Phoran in many recipes which is blend of five spices mustard, cumin, kalonji, fenugreek and fennel seeds. They also use mustard oil or ghee for tempering.

Papaya helps to reduce cholesterol and improves digestion. This is the first time I am cooking papaya as well as tasted it. We all liked it a lot and I should try to make many dishes using papaya. This gravy is so simple and pairs well with rice as well as rotis. You can make it as dry or add little coconut milk and make it as curry.  You can add potato or any other vegetable along with raw papaya. I used mustard oil for tempering.
