I am not a great fan of papaya, but at times I feel like having it especially on days I feel I should be eating healthy!, sometimes however I really enjoy some chilled sweet ripe papaya and feel how could I not like this??A very long time ago I had tasted kacche papita ka parantha (raw papaya parantha) and I remember I liked the taste so I thought of making these today.

Apart from being an excellent source of Vitamin A, it also contains the digestive enzyme-"papain", raw papaya is very good for tenderizing meat and if applied on the skin leaves it smooth and acne free!                          

                                                                              raw papaya

                             Grated raw papaya -ready for stuffing into paranthas


  • Raw papaya- 1 medium sized
  • Coriander leaves- a handful, chopped
  • Garam masala- 1 tsp.
  • Red chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Ajwain -1/4 tsp.
  • Salt to taste
  • Wheatflour for dough


Grate the papaya and squeeze out excess water, add all the other ingredients, mix well and keep aside.

Knead dough the usual way , stuff with the prepared raw papaya stuffing, cook on a hot griddle (tawa), smear with some pure ghee on both sides cook till golden brown.



            Raw papaya paranthas -ready to eat with pickle, yellow butter and curd

These paranthas turned out so delicious it was hardly possible to discover it's basis, and I can bet that if you don't tell someone what they are stuffed with, no one can guess!

                    These are off to lovely Nags for AFAM-Papaya

Beautiful paranthas. I too hate ripe papaya. Can't stand it. Hopefully raw papaya doesn't smell or taste like the ripe one. Will try this

Lucky you!! I used to cook with those in India, haven't seen those here!:)

wow! papaya parathas. How innovative, Bindiya! I hope I get a raw papaya here. I will surely make them.

These are great. If you use the papayas that are just beginning to ripen (still firm but pale pinky-orange) these parathas taste lovely.
