Easy Atsara Recipe

Homemade Atsara Recipe
(Pickled Papaya Recipe)

Hello Everyone!

I'm so excited to share with you my very first Atsara recipe. Oh, Yes! I just feel so proud of myself (lol) My Mom always makes this recipe when I was young and I kinda get use to it growing up. Since, I moved to the States I never make my own homemade Atsara, I thought that this recipe was hard to make until I was proven wrong. When craving strikes, I just have to give it a go. I was totally surprised how easy this recipe to make. Grab your favorite drink and let's get started.

Calling all my beloved friends and blog readers out-there to try this super easy homemade Atsara Recipe. Yes! this is highly recommended and taste scrumptious. I can't wait! So, lets get cooking. But, First grab all the ingredients listed below and listen to your favorite music while slicing all the vegetables :)

Enjoy your Atsara!:)


1 cup white vinegar
1 cup water
1 cup white sugar
4 cups grated fresh green papaya
1/4 cup salt
1 carrot
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 ginger


- Toss the grated papaya with 1/4 cup salt together in a large bowl. Mixed it well. Allow to sit for 1 hour. 
- Drain the liquid from the papaya and rinse thoroughly with water. Then, place the papaya in a cheese cloth and let it drain excess moisture completely.

- Chopped the vegetables into thin slices, just like the one on the photo above.
-Combine all the ingredients ( grated papaya and chopped vegetables) into large bowl. Mixed it well.
- You can totally use mason jars or any clean containers you have on hand to store your Atsara. I use my lunchbox container and it works just fine.
- Put the Atsara into individual containers and set aside.

-Stir vinegar, water, sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt into a small pan. Bring it to boil for 5 minutes.
- Pour the mixture into individuals containers with Atsara in it. Let it marinate in liquid for 1 day.
- Enjoy! 

Notes: I used cheese grater to grate the Papaya- it comes out a little finer texture which is totally fine with me. Feel free to use what you have on hand base on your preference.

And that concludes the Atsara Recipe for today. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! This Atsara recipe is so perfect with fried Bangus, barbecues, and I even pair it with Sinigang and it was delicious! The little tangy sweetness and the crunch from vegetables is just delicious!.

I hope you guys love this recipe as much I do. Don't forget to browse other delicious recipes here on blog for cooking inspiration. Until next time gorgeous~ Stay safe and healthy.

4.) Use a spoon to scoop small batch of the cookie dough, form into little ball. Place onto baking pan and press the middle of the cookie dough until you get the perfect shape for you jam filling.
