MsCellany, clearly papayas have wronged you and your family in the distant past. My sympathies, and if you just tell me which mannerless fruit it was, I'll make sure to use THAT one in my dish.
I intend to cook the rice separately in chicken broth and make the sauce, then combine. I'll let y'all know how it works out.
Now if only it would cool off enough to cook! Hates summer, I does. Hates it.
