Raw Papaya Curry | Kancha Peper Ghanto | Bengali Style

Kancha Peper Ghanto another Bengali recipe which is very healthy and tasty too. In case of ghanto (Dry Curry) preparation,there are so much variations. Earlier I said some people love to add little garam masala in ghanto and some people like to add coriander leaves. This time i prepared it by using garam masala to ghanto,as raw papaya has a strong aroma. To suppress that smell garam masala and pure ghee helps a lot. And it gives another royal flavor to the dish also. This is a pure side dish with plain rice and dal. At the same time this preparation takes very little time to cook and with a few ingredients its really easy to make. 

About the nutritional value, raw papaya is a good source of Vitamin C,Vitamin C and folate. It is very low in cholesterol and sodium. And a good dietary fiber. But who have sugar problem,for them it should avoid, as maximum calorie for this food comes from sugar only.
