Papaya (raw and green) grated 1 cup 

Carrot grated 3/4 cup

Salt to taste
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Dry Red Chillies 1-2, Curry Leaves few)
Lemon Juice as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Cook Papaya and carrot (al dente) in the microwave or stove top. Squeeze out the extra water, if any and set aside.

In a wok/kadai, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After mustard seeds pop and the dals are brown, add the papaya and carrot.

Sprinkle turmeric and add the green chillies.

Mix in salt as per taste.
