Tutti Frutti

Ingredients to make Tutti Frutti

  • Raw papaya cubes - (1/2 inch) 2 cups
  • Vanilla essence - few drops
  • Red food color - 1-2 pinch
  • Yellow food color - 1-2 pinch
  • Green food color - 1-2 pinch
  • sugar - 2 cups
  • water as needed

How to make Tutti Frutti

  1. Peel the outer skin of the raw papaya with a peeler. Slice the papaya, remove the seeds and inner tissues. Wash the slices in running water to remove any milky sap sticking to outer surface. Cut papaya slices into small cubes (1/2 inch cubes)
  2. Boil water (approximately 4 cups) in a dip pan and blanch the chopped raw papaya for 2-3 minutes. Turn of the flame and keep them in hot water for 5 minutes more. Then strain and keep aside.
  3. Again boil 3 - 4 cups water with 2 cups sugar. Once sugar dissolves completely, add the papaya cubes and cook for 15-20 minutes or until syrup reaches 1 string consistency.
  4. Turn off the flame. Add few drops of vanilla essence and mix well. Divide the whole mixture into 3 equal portions and put in 3 different bowls.
  5. Add 1-2 pinch of red food color to 1st bowl, 1-2 pinch of yellow food color to 2nd bowl and 1-2 pinch of green food color to 3rd bowl. Mix well each bowl, cover and keep aside for 18-20 hrs at room temperature.
  6. Then strain the papayas and allow them to dry for several hours or until no stickiness. Mix all the three colors, store in an airtight container and use whenever needed!

My Tip:

The amount of chopped papaya cubes and the sugar should always be same. For longer use of trutti frutti, always try to dry completely the colored cubes before refrigerating. Adding colors is purely optional, but it is preferable to add different colors as it looks more colorful and attractive. These trutti frutti can be stored up to 1-2 months if refrigerated properly.
