Pickled papaya or commonly known as atchara is one of the popular side dishes or appetizer in the Philippines. It is good to be paired with a fried or a grilled dish like pork liempo and barbecue. It is even good to come with bistek.

Doing this dish requires a lot of time and patience since grated papaya is the main ingredient. But doing this is more enjoyable working in a Stained Glass Sinks.

Here is my version of Atcharang Papaya:
