Fafda and papaya sambharo are a match made for each other. The crispiness of the fafda, the hints of heat from the green chilies in the papaya chutney, the moistness, crunchiness and the flavor of papaya – a myriad of taste, textures and flavors.

I have also shared Gujarati fafda and besan fafda chutney recipes. Links below:

Papaya chutney is usually served with fafda, ghatiya, methi na gota and khaman dhokla. Making papaya chutney recipe is very easy and just takes about 15 t0 20 minutes. If you are wondering what fafda is – fafda is a crisp fried snack made from gram flour (pic below).

When living in Mumbai, a Gujarati snacks shop, close to our home, would serve fafda along with papaya chutney as a morning breakfast. On some weekends I would buy fafda, papaya chutney, fried green chilies from the snack shop along with some jalebi. This used to be my favorite breakfast then and also now. The best part of this rich morning breakfast to me was the papaya chutney, which would taste so good with the fafda. During Dussehra festival fafda along with papaya chutney, fafda chutney and jalebi is sold like hot cakes.

I make papaya sambaro similar to carrot sambharo. I have shared Carrot sambharo recipe a few years back. This papaya chutney recipe comes very close to the papaya chutney one gets in Gujarati miThai or sweet shops. Even though papaya sambharo is served with fafda and gathiya, but you can also serve it with methi thepla or rava dhokla or plain parathas or aloo paratha and even as a side dish with dal-rice.
