Winters are fast knocking, and what better way to warm up with a big bowl of some piping hot soup. A very healthy and easy recipe of raw papaya/ green papaya soup. I love my  soups to be clear, without any added thickener, with chunks of sauted onions and mildly burnt garlic, yah ! thats totally my kind!! 


  • Raw papaya /green papaya ( cleaned,peeled, diced)- 2 cups
  • Water- 3 cups ( more less depending on final consistency of soup)
  • White Vinegar/ Apple cider Vinegar ? lime juice- 2 to 3 tablespoons ( adjust according to sourness required)
  • Salt- according to taste
  • sugar (optiona)- 1/4 teaspoon
  • Black pepper- 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander- half of a small bunch
  • Butter – 1 heaped tablespoon
  • Onion ( finely chopped)- 1 small sized
  • garlic(finely chopped)- few pods


  • Boil the diced papayas in sufficient water, after around 8-10 minutes of boiling, once they turn fork tender, switch off the flame, remove the papaya cubes, preserve the water.
  • Once the papaya cubes are cooled, add them to a blender jar, add coriander leaves ( this gives green colour to the paste) and grind them to a fine paste.
  • In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon butter, sauté finely chopped onion till they just turn translucent.
  • Add finely chopped garlic, sauté for few minutes.
  • Add the papaya stock ( water in which papaya was boiled).
  • Add all the seasoning, i.e salt, black pepper and sugar.
  • Strain the puree and add it to the boiling water.
  • Mix well, allow the soup to boil for few minutes, add lemon juice/ vinegar, mix well and switch off the flame.
  • Best served with raw papaya salad
