What makes this fruity dish so unique?

  • It’s got Papaya! And before you make a face, here’s a fact; Papaya is highly recommended by doctors for GERD diet as it contains papain – an enzyme that improves your digestion and helps to handle the absorption of protein in your body. It can help to reduce your acid reflux, improve your digestion, and bring peace to your stomach.
  • Cottage cheese is a great source of calcium!
  • Star Fruit is an absolute star when it comes to nutrient. It contains high fiber and low calories and is rich in vitamin A and C, fiber and iron, as well as anti-oxidants.

Instructions
  1. Peel and deseed that papaya. Chop finely.
  2. Slice the Starfruit and keep aside.
  3. Combine the cottage cheese, papaya and basil until mixed together. Try not to mix more than needed, though, because ripe papaya is juicy and it will create more liquid than you probably want in the cottage cheese.
  4. For individual bite-size servings, lay the starfruit slices flat in an even layer on a serving platter, then scoop some of the cottage cheese mixture on top of each slice. It’s a good idea to dry the top of the starfruit so the cottage cheese mixture doesn’t slide right off it.
  5. For a "help yourself" dish, place the cottage cheese mixture on a small serving plate, then arrange the starfruit slices around the edge. Throw a few whole basil leaves in the center for garnish if desired.
