Peel the raw papaya and immerse in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. This is to make it easier to cut without all the sap sticking to the fingers. Remove and cut into a 1 cm dice. Boil the diced raw papaya in 2 cups of water with salt and turmeric for 15 minutes, until cooked, but not mushy. Alternatively, place in a pressure cooker with 1 cup water with salt and turmeric and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
