With Memorial Day passed by, summer has set in. The Texas sun has started taking its toll, and it has become almost impossible to go out in the afternoon. With the heat rising and the dry weather, the best thing to keep yourself cool is to have loads of fruits.
Though I almost hate ripe papayas, but I’m in love with the raw green ones. The raw papaya has high amount of the papain enzyme. It is good for the skin as well as the heart. But, its most important benefit is it helps as a digestive enzyme. And, probably because of this the dida (grandmother from mom’s side) also used to put a few slices of papaya when she prepared mutton curry, to tenderize the meat.
