For this Onam and Bakrid season I am presenting a deferent payasam with papaya. I know during this festive season we can't end the feast without any sweet.
Papaya fruit is available through out the year mostly everywhere. I know papaya fruit is not everyone favourite, it has the slight bitter after taste that put most people off. The great voyager Christopher Columbus used to refer to this fruit as "fruit of angels". Raw papaya has good source of fibre, which helps to lower high cholesterol and blood sugar level.

Its a beauty experts too, often suggest using slices of papaya as a natural skin cleanser as the active enzymes work wonders to remove impurities. Papaya is low in calories and it helps for weight loss. So try to include this fruit in your diet.
