Guava Curry/Peru Curry Recipe

I did not know that there used to be Guava Curry/Guava Bhaji which is a specialty of Rajasthan. It is one the rare fruit where curry is made and enjoyed with Roti.

The taste of the curry is a mix of tanginess, sweetness, saltiness. The full flavor of Guava/Peru is there and it really feels like you are having them raw. So here is the Recipe.

  1. 4 Peru aka Guava (Green or Ripe peru/Guava)
  2. Salt to Taste
  3. Sugar
  4. Lime Water
  5. 2 Tbsp Oil
  6. Turmeric
  7. Jeera Seed
  8. Red Chilli Powder
  9. Dhanya powder
  10. Water
 How to Make:
  1. Pour Oil in the Pan and heat it.
  2. Put Jeera seed and let it crackle
  3.  Peel and cut the Peru in small cubes. Add them in the pan.
  4. Then add Turmeric, Chilli Powder, Dhanya Powder and Salt to taste
  5. Mix well and add little water.
  6. Cook on a low flame till the Guava/Peru cubes are soft.
  7. When it is nearly cooked add Lime Juice and Sugar
  8. Then continue cooking for one minute.

Next one will be Raw Banana Curry.

Not Just Parathas - Gurgaon Jewel

Mint parathaImage via WikipediaLocated in heart of Gurgaon near MG Road Metro Station in DT Mall place is known as Not Just Parathas which is specializing in Parathas and other addons.

What I really loved about this place is there are so many things which are different from the regular hotel that one gets confused on what one should eat and what not to eat. Place has Parathas, Kababs, Rotis, meal combos for lunch etc etc.

Three of us decided to try it out and it was brilliant not the service or the attitude of the steward but the food. We ordered Khatta Meetha Paratha, Bhurji Paratha and Lasuni Paneer Paratha all of 6 inches, yes you do get an option to have a small paratha or a bigger 9 inches one. Cost difference is not that much. After quickly munching on our initial course we then got bolder, decided to order Chur Chur Aloo Pyaaz. Let me tell you what it is, they make atleast 2 paratha and then just crush it. Not exactly chur chur but decent enough.
The dish of the day was Dal Kheema which was Mutton Kheema mixed with Dal and cooked together, amazing flavor, not too spicy and tasty. Quantity wise also it was very good.

All in all a good place to try out if you like to eat different kind of parathas.
