Green Papaya contains more papain enzymes than ripe papaya. We know that papaya is good for digestion. Here (read: in Indonesia) we usually consume ripe papaya if we have difficulty defecating.

This Green Papaya papaya is better than ripe papaya in terms of cleaning the digestive tract naturally.

Carotenoid content which is more in Green Papaya can protect the body and increase immunity.

  • Heat the oil. Saute the red onion and garlic until it smells good. Add kaffir lime leaves.
  • Then add the Green Papaya slices.
  • Add a little water, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook until papaya is cooked, but not too long because the texture of papaya will become not good, too soft.

That is a stunning plate! I think I've had green papaya before, but here you can usually only find the ripe ones. Very neat to learn about the higher levels of papain, too.
