Ginataang Papaya with Canned Tuna. Ginataang papaya is usually cooked with tinapa or dried fish, I did not have both so I substituted it with canned tuna, as expected it was as good. Ginataang papaya is one of my favorite ginataang vegetable dish, there is that thing with papaya, when cooked with coconut milk that make the dish match with a lot of hot steamy rice. Just thinking about a creamy yummy Ginataang Papaya makes me droll and I am sure a lot of ginataang loving Pinoy out there will feel the same.
