Guava Chutney

Again a chutney with a difference, tried this chutney when my mother was sick, diagnosed with renal failure and hypertension. She was a lover of fruits and daily took two varieties of fruits. 

But when she was  adviced to take only guavas, one day she asked me to prepare this chutney and I found the  taste to be yummy. And also she used to have guava mashed with buttermilk and a pinch of pink salt to satisfy her taste buds. I learnt all the guava recipes from my mom. “Variety is the Spice of life”, that was she used to say. 

Ingredients :

  • 2 Guavas semi ripe (remove the seeds) 
  • 4 red chillies
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 
  • 1 tsp pink salt
  • Coriander leaves 
  • 1 tsp finely chopped ginger

Method :

Peel the skin of the guavas ( optional). 

Roughly chop, add  all the ingredients to a mixer jar and grind coarsely. 

You can season this chutney with oil, mustard seeds and a pinch of asafoetida. Again this is optional. 

Served this chutney for cucumber dosa or for kara adai. 

Use it as spread on bread slices.
