Atsara | Atchara (Pickled Green Papaya) Recipe


Estimated cooking time including preparation: 45 minutes


Atsara Ingredients:

  • 4 cups grated green papaya

  • 1/4 cup of rock salt

  • 1 cup vinegar

  • 2 carrots, finely sliced

  • 5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

  • 1/2 big onion, sliced or 2-3 small whole onions

  • 1 small yellow ginger, sliced finely

  • 1/2 green pepper, sliced into strips

  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced into strips

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • Sterilized glass jar/s

Instructions Making Pickled Papaya :

  • With clean bare hands (or with gloves), mush the grated green papaya in salt for a few minutes.

  • Place in cheese cloth (any clean piece of cloth will do) and squeeze all the juice out.

  • Loosen out the squeezed papaya and mix with the ingredients above (carrots, garlic, onion, ginger, green & red peppers and sugar. Add spoon full of salt. Place in glass jar/s and top with vinegar.

  • Refrigerate.

Atsara Cooking Tips:

  • Clean & sterilized jars are important to preserve the atsara longer. An unsterilized jar can hasten bacterial & fungi growth and may spoil the Atsara quickly (instead of several weeks).

  • An easy way to sterilize is to boil the glass in a pot or pan of boiling water for 10 minutes. Place upright with the lid facing up & carefully remove with a thong without touching.
