A tasty ukoy dish made from grated green papaya and fresh small shrimps. The usual ukoy is made from toge and shrimps and I think substituting it with other kinds of vegetable like the unripe green papaya is a better choice specially if toge is not available.

Papaya Ukoy with Shrimp Recipe


  • 1 medium sized Papaya, shredded
  • 1/4 kilo of prawns
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • Cooking oil for deep frying

Cooking Procedure:

  1. Mix flour, egg, salt and water in a bowl then add the shredded papaya and mix it well.
  2. Get your deep frying pan and pour the cooking oil. Let it heat up well. Get a small saucer and place about two to three spoonful of your papaya and flour mixture. Flatten the mixture with the back of a spoon to have a nice round shape of about an inch thickness. Decorate the top with a prawn, from the saucer slide the mixture gently on your hot oil and cook both sides until golden brown. Be careful, don’t splatter it.

Now to prepare a vinegar dip:
Get a cup of Vinegar (any kind but preferably sukang puti or according to your likeness), chopped some chilis, ground garlic, salt and pepper.
