Atchara (Pickled Green Papaya) Recipe
Estimated cooking time including preparation: 45 minutes
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.
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.
