Aromatics:

  • 1½ tsp chopped garlic

  • 1½ tsp chopped ginger

  • 1 onion, cut into petals

  • 4-5 green chilies, deseeded

For Sauce:

Instructions:

  1. Preparation: Start by marinating the chicken slices with salt, white pepper, and cornstarch. Mix well and set aside.

  2. Blanching: Blanch the sliced carrot and green papaya in boiling water for 2 min 30 sec. Transfer them to a cold water bath to halt cooking.

  3. Cook Chicken: In a pan, heat 1 tbsp cooking oil and fry the marinated chicken for 4-5 minutes, until it turns white. Set aside.

  4. Sauté Aromatics: Clean the wok and add 2 tsp cooking oil. Toss in garlic, ginger, onion petals, and green chilies. Sauté for 1-2 minutes on high heat until fragrant.

  5. Veggie Time: Add the mushrooms, cabbage, and green bell pepper. Sauté on high heat for 2 more minutes. Sprinkle in some ground white pepper.

  6. Combine: Add the blanched vegetables and fried chicken. Stir well.

  7. Sauce it Up: Add salt, chicken powder, sugar, water, and oyster sauce. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the papaya is slightly tender but still crisp.

  8. Thicken: Add cornstarch slurry and mix until the sauce thickens.

  9. Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle some chopped green onions on top and serve hot with your favorite fried rice or steamed rice.
