Atchara or Atsara is a very popular condiment or side dish in the Philippines, often served with meats that are either barbecued or fried. This is a good pair for those types of meats as it acts as a palate cleanser and should be taken in small amounts. This dish is done by pickling shredded green papaya together with other vegetables such as carrots, ginger, onion and capsicum in vinegar mixed with salt.
I have come to love pickles like this living in Mauritius the past 2 and a bit years. Great recipe.
I am a big fan of atchara!!
We too do this pickle but with sliced red chillies or birds eye chillies for the extra ooph taste.
