Papaya Pickles Recipe

Ingredients :

1 Green unripe papaya, seeded, skin removed and cut into halves

1 tablespoon salt

5 bird's eye chili

250ml vinegar

250ml water

280g sugar


Method :
  • Cut the papaya into a thickness of 1 inch slices then cut each piece into thin slices without cutting all the way through. This allows the pieces to be opened up into a fan shape.

  • Cut the papaya into thin slices if preferred.

  • Put the pieces of papaya in a clean mixing bowl.

  • Add the salt, mix and allow to marinate for about an hour until the papaya turn soft.

  • Remove the excess liquid.

  • Put water, vinegar, and sugar into a heavy-based saucepan and bring to a low simmering boil for about 15 minutes.

  • Remove saucepan from the heat and leave aside to cool completely.

  • Pack the papaya slices and chili padi in a glass jar and pour in the cooled vinegar syrup.

  • Allow to marinate for about 2.5 to 3 hours before serving.

  • Store the pickle in the fridge for an extra crunchy taste.
