Kacche Papite Ka Kofta (raw Papaya Dumplings In Gravy)
Kofta curry is referred to preparations where small dumplings (made of vegetables or meat) are served with creamy gravy. To me. Kofta is basically a way to make a person eat something, which he or she will not eat normally. For example, my mother used to make kofta out of Bottle gourd, raw Banana, Jackfruit and Papaya in order to make us eat them. Out of these, I guess Papaya kofta was the most common, may be because it is available in all seasons. The time has changed and the young generation is more conscious regarding what they eat. They want to eat healthy but tasty food.
Papaya is a rich source of antioxidants such as folic acid, fiber, carotenes, vitamin C and E. It contains the digestive enzyme, papain which is good for the digestive system. Here is recipe which keeps the goodness of Papaya at the same time it is an excellent side dish.
