Papaya Curry

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by echo echo

A refreshing vegetarian fruit curry, medium hot, to be served over rice. "Barely ripe" bananas means newly ripe, or not so ripe that they're losing their firmness. I did not include salt, which many people will miss; if you want, you can add salt in an amount to suit your taste.

This was surprisingly good. I was a little worried about how all of the flavors would blend together, especially since I have never made a fruit curry before-but this was fantastic. I used fresh pineapple, and added a little cinnamon and nutmeg for an extra zing. The only reason that I'm not giving this 5 stars is because I had to add quite a bit of salt to it
