Caribbean Okra Papaya Curry is a delicious vegan dish with a spoonful of homemade Caribbean curry. Fruity and fresh served on rice or quinoa. I decided to make this okra papaya curry for the first time after visiting Cuba (a beautiful country with very very friendly people, by the way). I usually eat papaya alone in a fruit salad or mixed into a smoothie, but there are so many beautiful dishes you can whip up with this versatile fruit.

Papaya originally comes from Central America. Today it is grown in tropical regions of the world, in the Caribbean and Asia. My first experience of eating ripe papayas was when I ate a vegetable curry of the kind described here in a restaurant in Cuba. Later, when I was visiting friends in Thailand, papaya was used again for cooking. There, however, rather with the green, i.e. unripe papaya and mostly as a vegetable side dish in the form of freshly prepared papaya salad. Green papaya is popular in many Asian cuisines, both in salads and in stews.

I decided to make a Caribbean style curry with it, as flavorful as I remembered. Ripe papayas are sold in most large supermarkets. If you are looking for a green papaya, you will certainly find it in Asian supermarkets. Ripe papayas have yellow-green skin.

I keep a papaya in the fridge so it doesn’t continue to ripen and go bad too quickly. However, you can leave an unripe green papaya on a dry surface for a few days. The skin then turns yellow with orange flesh.
