Raw Papaya and Beans Salad



Okay, first things first. I changed the design of my blog. Do tell me if you like it.

Second: There is a new sitcom up on our national TV nowadays – the Mahabharat. It was aired a long time ago, when I was a school going kid. We would all gather on Sunday mornings at our breakfast tables and watch an hour long episode of it. Even my grandpa, who never watched TV, watched it quite religiously. It is being aired again now with new people playing the characters. If you do not know about Mahabharat yet, I urge you to read about it on Wiki.


The thought of watching TV while eating is probably old. But what do you do when there is nothing interesting on TV? Do you just mute your television and watch the people talking? Or do you switch it off and eat your food in silence?  Or do you rather sit and talk to your family than watch TV, anyway?


  1. 150 gm green papaya, washed, peeled and grated
  2. 250 gm French beans, washed, and heads cut
  3. ½ a yellow pepper (capsicum), sliced into inch pieces
  4. 2 inches fresh, young ginger
  5. A handful of almonds, roasted
  6. Juice of half a lime (optional)
  7. Salt
  8. Fresh black pepper


–          Preheat your oven to the highest (250C), and place prepared beans (greased too) in the oven in a roasting tray. Roast for about 15 min, or till they have roasted till light brown

–          Meanwhile, prepare you other vegetables for the salad, and the dressing. The dressing is simply combining the grated ginger, lime juice and olive oil.

–          After the beans have roasted, combine them with the other vegetables and almonds, season and serve warm
