🌿🧄 Stir Fried Papaya & Lemongrass With Tempeh 🌶️ An Ital Khmer-ibbean Recipe

in Natural Medicine2 months ago (edited)


Hi everyone, I have stir fried papaya for lunch today. This is a food I can eat everyday with rice and my family likes it too. This is the first time I made it here because it's difficult to find kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and green papaya.

Sometimes I can take lemongrass and papaya from people's house but kaffir lime leaves not have in Suriname. I have some kaffir lime leaves from Holland that friends gave me the other day.


👩‍🍳 Stir Fried Green Papaya With Tempeh (Ital) Recipe 🔪


  • 3 lemongrass stalks
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 small piece galangal
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric power
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 green chilies
  • 1 tbsp chili paste
  • 1/2 green papaya
  • 1 block tempeh
  • roasted peanuts
  • a little tulsi leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water

Fry tempeh then cut papaya small, cut lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, garlic and grind it with turmeric, all chilies very well.

Step 1

Heat oil and fry paste a little.

Step 2

Then put papaya, fry it a little and add salt, sugar, soy sauce. Fry a little bit and pour water fry and simmer it a few minutes.

Step 3

After put roasted peanuts and tulsi, fry a bit more and close the stove.

It’s ready now.


It’s was delicious with brown rice. Wish you are all well everywhere you are.

This looks so good. You know I’ve never had cooked papaya.
I hardly see papayas here. Saw a few at a supermarket some weeks ago but found it hard to buy one😆. It was expensive. Finally bought one. It seemed ripe but after cutting it, I realized it wasn’t. I was disappointed. I tasted a piece and it was so bitter. I probably could have cooked it up with some veggies.

I live here two years ago but I never to see green papaya in the market or the China store but I can get it from the people’s house, so that is not easy to get it. I like green papaya more than sweet papaya because I like to eat papaya salad and it’s very good to make soup. Thanks a lot for your comments. !ENGAGE 35

You know that in Venezuela we do not consume papaya or "milky" as a salty dish, but as a sweet, in juices or in fruit salads, however this great recipe that you present to us deserves to be replicated, made, to know the flavors of other cultures. I liked that you used turmeric, I like the taste of it, and I actually grow it. I do not know the taste of kaffir lime or tulsi leaves, I will have to find out and do some research. Like all the recipes that I have seen you have published, this one is also excellently well explained, with an impeccable step by step, good quantities and also you give us a story along with the recipe itself, which adds emotion and feeling to the publication . Very good work. Greetings.

Sabes que en Venezuela no consumimos la papaya o lechosa como plato salado, sino como dulce, en jugos o en ensaladas de frutas, sin embargo esta genial receta que nos presentas, merece replicarla, hacerla, para conocer los sabores de otras culturas. Me gustó que empleases la cúrcuma, a mí me gusta su sabor, y de hecho la cultivo. No conozco el sabor de la lima kaffir ni de las hojas de tulsi, tendré que averiguar y documentarme. Como todas las recetas que he visto has publicado, esta también está excelentemente bien explicada, con un paso a paso impecable, buenas cantidades y además nos das una historia junto con la receta en sí misma, lo que le añade emoción y sentimiento a la publicación. Muy buen trabajo. Saludos.

Thank you a lot for the stopping by and your time. The green papaya or old papaya, they are common to make soups or other food in Cambodia and we make sweet papaya juice the same but I like eat sweet papaya raw . !ENGAGE 45

Another recipe that looks so flavorful and delicious! I think I've only had green papaya in a slaw before, but I bet it's great in so many different applications. Once again you've made me want to go to the specialty markets to get some of these spices and flavorings to use here!

Thank you for stopping by. These spices so common in Cambodia and I think it’s easy to find in USA also, maybe I am not sure. I wish you a good luck at everything. !ENGAGE 30
