Raw Papaya Salad

Raw Papaya Salad is one of my favourite salad. First time we tasted this salad in Ahmedabad Restaurant and we all like it much. A traditional Gujarat warm salad made from raw papaya served as side dish along with Guajarati main course. They called it kacha Papaya sambharo. A sambharo is typically made by quickly stir frying the main ingredient in a little oil along with some spices. Though this salad is normally served with Gujarati snacks, it goes well with rotis and parathas too, as a side dish. It is healthy, tasty, and also easy to make, with low-calorie, and very nutritious salad.
