In a salad bowl combine red onion, bell peppers, papaya, brown rice and mix gently.
Now toss in the rest of the ingredients and serve immediately.
If not serving immediately don’t mix in the seasoning. Refrigerate the dry salad ingredients. Toss in the seasonings when ready to serve.
Black salt (kala namak) is easily available in Indian store. If desired Himalayan pink salt can also be substituted.
Squeeze fresh lemon if possible as this will enhance the fresh taste of the salad.
Make sure the papaya is ripe and sweet.
This recipe can be made with left over brown rice or make fresh brown rice but do not add salt while boiling brown rice. If the leftover brown rice has salt in it already then please adjust the salt as per your taste.
