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.
