Super Bryan makes Pork Papaya Soup for the Party

2 Nov

Super Bryan, my flatmate, recently made this soup for 6 of his friends.

Its a Chinese preparation and is called Phai ku twa mu qua, translated: pork ribs boiled papaya.

It’s got an interesting taste, and while its relatively easy to make, you have got to be in it for the long haul (because this blessed thing takes at least 3 hours to turn out).

What does it taste like? In the words of Super Bryan, “A little sweet, and mainly just very very good.” I suggest you Go For It.

So. Here’s what you have to do if making it for six people. Just do the math if its four or two.

What you need:

Pork Ribs  1 kg

Ginger paste 2-3 tbsp

Spring Onions 2, chopped

Water 4 ltrs

Salt 6 tbsp

Small sized Papaya 2, chopped


Super Bryan's super cutting skills

What to do:

On a high flame, bring the water to boil and add the pork ribs, ginger, spring onions and salt. Let it boil till the pork cooks.

Lower the heat to medium and add the Papaya.

Boil for AT LEAST 2 hours. More, if you want the taste to improve. Add more salt later if required. Done!
