2. Fry ginger and garlic in the oil remaining in the pan until aromatic then return the chicken to the pan, add the broth, papaya pieces, and both sauces and simmer for forty-five minutes. Add the pepper or papaya seeds and the cornstarch mixture and cook over high heat until thick and clear, then serve in bowls as you would a stew.
