Guava Chutney(Jamfal Chutney) and awards!!

In Gujarat,India Guava season comes during the winter theU.K it's all around the year ... Dholka city in the Gujarat is very famous for this fruit..when some one goes to this city they never forget to bring this fruit for their loved ones!! I remember eating just with salt and red chilli mum used to make chutney out of it...this springs up some wonderful childhood memories!!.and here is the recipe..

You will need:-
  • 1 cup Guava, cubed
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Tumeric powder, Red chilli powder, Cumin and coriander powder and Garam Masala-to your liking
  • Finly chopped coriander
  • 1/4 cup Gor(Jaggary)
  • 1 tsp cuminseeds
  • pinch of Hing(Asafoetida)
In a heavey bottom pan heat the oil.  Add cumin seeds and hing and let it spultter, now add Guava, all the masala and salt.  Mix very well and add 1/4 cup water.  Let it cook for 6-7 minutes and add gor and cook further 1 minue.  Turn the heat off and garnish with coriander.  Ready to serve. Great for side dish.

Enjoy!!   Sending this dish to event "Think Beyond the Usual-Fruits hosted by Nithu Bala....

Guava chutney never come across it but sounds innovative.My experience with guava is in fruit form only and that also found I didnt like because of the hard seeds in it.Maybe I will try this chutney and become a fan of it.Isnt guava sweet already? because you have added jaggery to it in the recipe.???
