  9. Bake at 180C for 25-30 mins./till golden brown. There will still be butter bubbling on the surface of the base when done as there is good amount of butter in the mix. This will be soaked up by the base once outside the oven. While the base is in the oven baking, make the Papaya almond filling to go on top of the base. Blend Almond and sugar into a fine mix  in a mixer jar. Further add all the remaining  ingredients(Papaya ,corn flour, lemon juice n salt) and thoroughly blend to a smooth paste.
