  1. I have chicken, I have cashews, I have papaya…I am SO making this. Love the addition of garam masala and mint. Winner!

  2. I absolutely love chicken with garahm masala so I know my husband and I would love this salad. I’ve never used papaya fruit in a dish so I’m totally going to have to try that!
