Papaya Salad

Papaya has a ton of health benefits. This papaya salad is a recipe from one of my dear friend. Her father was extremely fond of this raw papaya salad.

Ingredients:

One cup medium chopped papaya (raw papaya tastes better)

1/2 tsp Pepper powder

1/2 tsp Chat masala (optional)

Salt

1/2 tsp Lemon Juice

Fresh Coriander leaves

Method:

Mix all the ingredients and garnish with coriander. Serve immediately or chill it and serve cold.

Health Benefits:

Papaya fruit is an excellent source of dietary fiber, folate, vitamin A, C and E. It also contains small amount of calcium, iron, riboflavin, thiamine and niacine. It is also very rich in antioxidant nutrients flavonoids and carotenes, very high in vitamin C plus A, and low in calories and sodium.

Papaya everyday works magic on strengthening the immune system preventing the recurrent colds and flu.
