Raw Papaya Paratha

Raw Papaya Paratha is delicious and nutritious made with whole wheat flour and grated raw papaya. It is very simple, easy to make and great for breakfast . Papaya is packed with numerous health benefiting nutrients and known to help in digestion. This fruit is composed of a nutritious element papain, which is a natural digestive agent that has the capacity to break down the protein and to clean the digestion canal.
I love to eat this fruit for its digestive, nutritional and medicinal properties.


  • 1 cup grated raw Papaya
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (add accordingly)
  • 4 tablespoon gram flour (besan)
  • 1 tablespoon oil for moyan
  • 2 green chili, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Pinch of asafetida
  • 1 tablespoon roasted cumin seed powder (Jeera Powder)
  • salt to taste
  • little wheat flour for dusting
  • oil for cooking
  1. Mix the wheat flour , besan (gram flour) and 1 tablespoon of oil.
  2. Add jeera powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder, asafetida, chopped green chili and grated papaya to it. 
  3. Mix well to incorporate and form a medium stiff dough (not dry). If needed add more or less wheat flour to the dough. Knead the dough well. If required add little water. (This dough should not be much soft)
  4. Apply little oil on top of dough, cover and keep it aside for 15 minutes.
  5. Divide dough into 8-10 equal portions depending upon your desired paratha size.
  6. Now heat the skillet on medium flame.
  7. Take a dough ball, flatten it with palm, dust it with wheat flour and roll out each dough ball thinly into a circle.
  8. Drop the rolled paratha gently on hot skillet, Cook on both sides, using little oil till the parathas are golden brown.
  9. Spread butter on parathas and serve hot with curd, pickle or raita.

  2. Paneer stuffed Spinach (palak) Paratha

  • Dough should be medium stiff neither soft nor dry otherwise it becomes hard to roll parathas.
  • In the same way you can make parathas with grated cabbage or or grated raddish or grated bottle gourd instead of raw Papaya.
