Papaya Burfi - Prism Around Gurjeet

Papaya Burfi

                                 PAPAYA BURFI

Papaya is rich in antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, flavonoids, and vitamin C, as well as vitamin B (folate and pantothenic acid). It is also a good source of fiber and minerals such as magnesium. Together, these nutrients help improve cardiovascular health and protect against colon cancer.

Papaya has so many benefits and I always want my kids and hubby to have it . I love papaya but you know most of the kids run away from papaya as my kids do.
Any how Moms are smarter than kids who know how to make them eat the thing they hate or run from. Hide those things in some innovative dishes and feed them is what we smart mom do.
