It’s my pleasure to bring to you some amazing recipes using one of the most healthiest fruits – Papaya! A huge thanks to all those who tried hard to get hold of one, for racking your brains for a recipe and a special thanks to my sis and Nanditha for contributing not one, but two recipes! And for those who thought Papaya can only be cut and eaten just like that, here are some recipes to get you started on thinking otherwise. Let’s start the party with some drinks, shall we?

Also Gazal Misra, a non-blogger, sent me this lovely recipe to add to the round up. Thank you Gazal!
Papaya Lassi Recipe
1 cup ripe papaya, diced and mashed well
1 cup plain yogurt
2 cups chilled water
2 tablespoons lime juice (optional)
Few mint leaves
A luxurious addition – a dollop of vanilla ice cream
(add 2 tsp of sugar, in case you aren’t on a diet)
Use a hand blender to beat or blend yogurt and sugar, then add water and beat again. Add mashed papaya with all the seasonings. Add a dollop of vanilla ice cream in the glass and pour the lassi over it. Garnish with mint and serve cold.
