Papaya Pradhaman | Papaya Kheer

Papaya, is very rich in vitamins ,minerals & fiber.(as I mentioned earlier in my papaya milk shake post)This is a real tasty delicious pradhaman,to check out on Onam which is in a couple of weeks now.I was very uncertain of the taste of the pradhaman,but to my wonder kids asked for more.They really loved it ,it tastes similar like other pradhamans,papaya in it has no special taste difference.The color of the pradhaman is reddish brown in color.If you have kids & elders who hate this wonder fruit papaya,then this is the best easy way to sneak the fruit.I bet,anyone would say 'no' to this delicious dessert.So,do give this a try & Enjoy !!!


Ingredients
ripe papaya 2.5 lbs(1.13kg)
coconut milk (thick) 1/2 cup
coconut milk(thin)1 1/2cup (refer notes)
jaggery 1 cup(refer notes)
ghee 2 tbsp
cashews 2tbsp
raisins 2tbsp
cardamom powder 1tsp
dry ginger powder 1/2 tsp


Method
-Wash,peel and cut the papayas in water,cut into cubes.(refer notes)
-Place it in a pan with 1 cup water and let it cook on medium flame covered.It may take 15-20 minutes.If the water dries up,add half of the thin coconut milk.
-In the meantime,melt the jaggery in half cup hot water.Strain the impurities,keep aside.
-Add the remaining thin coconut milk in the cooked papaya.Slightly mash the papaya pieces.
-Let it cook for another 10 minutes on medium flame until the pradhaman thickens.Keep stirring in between so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
-Heat another pan and add ghee.Fry the cashews followed by raisins,add it to the pradhaman.
-Add the cardamom powder and dry ginger powder.Lower the flame to low heat.
-Add the thick coconut milk,let 1-2 bubbles appear at the surface.Switch off flame.
-Serve warm or cool !!

Servings~ 3-4adults

Notes
* The outer tough skin should be cut thick as it may leave a bitter taste.Please check the taste of a cut piece before boiling.
* If you are using coconut milk from shredded coconut,then add the third extract milk to cook papaya follwed by the second and finally towards the end add the first.(thick)
* I used the canned coconut milk(Chaokoh brand).I diluted the 3-4tbsp of thick coconut milk in 1 1/2 cup water to get thin coconut milk.
* You can fully mash the papaya pieces too but we like tiny crunch bits so I just mashed 3/4 th.

Just a closer view:)
