How to quickly plan papaya fibers for easy and convenient pre-processing of ingredients

Grate papaya with a multi-purpose knife
Materials and tools
1 ripe papaya
After buying papaya, you wash it with water and cut the papaya in half lengthwise, then use a 2-blade knife to peel off the skin and remove the stem at the top. Note that you should peel a little thick to avoid eating the bitter and plastic part.
Inside the papaya fruit, there will be small black seeds. After peeling off the skin, you just need to remove the seeds by hand to easily remove all of them.
Wash and soak the stone
Next, you wash the papaya a few times with water and then prepare a bowl, pour clean water and ice into it to soak the papaya for about 3 minutes. This will help the papaya become firmer and more crispy.
You hold the multi-purpose knife with your right hand and press the back of the papaya close to the blade and then plan it from bottom to top. After the papaya is shaved, it should be immediately dropped into the ice bath to prevent the papaya from turning brown and keeping its crispiness.
Once you have shaved a section, you should turn the other side of the fruit to make it easier to continue. Keep doing that until the end. Papaya fiber is ready to be processed into an attractive salad.
