Papaya Thoran/Papaya Coconut Stirfry

Everyday I read many things. Some of them stay in my mind while the rest I forget completely. I am planning to add a new segment 'What I read Today and What i am inspired by' in the coming blog posts along with the recipes, where i will share the inspirational,motivational or informative things which help us to succeed in our life. The other thing is that i think it serves as a repository  where we can look back and read. May Allah help me to do efficiently and effectively in my humble attempt.Ameen
