Spicy Guava Salsa In 5 Minutes

Guavas are one of the most nostalgic fruits for me. It brings back memories of the times I used to climb the guava tree in our back yard and enjoyed some delicious guavas. In the U.S. we do find them on and off in the Indian stores. Guavas that we used to have in our back yard had a pink pulp on the interior. This variety is kind of hard to find in the U.S. But, yesterday I got a huge bag full of the pink variety of guavas from one of the grand fathers at school.One can classify him as a typical quiet dadaji/thatha types, who never failed to pick his grandson from school. I have been seeing him for the last year or so waiting patiently for the school gates to open. Every time I saw him I always acknowledged his presence and said hello. To that  he would just smile and nod his head shyly. Yesterday at school he called out to me and gave me a bag of the most delicious guava's I have ever tasted in the U.S. It was ripe and was perfect for making salsa.

Measuring Cups and Spoons


Guava's - 2 cups chopped
Chilli Powder - 1/4th tsp ( increase for more spice)

Cilantro - 2 tsp chopped

1. Cut the guava into chunky cubes. ( If it is ripe do not cut them into small pieces it will get mushy).
2. Mix lime juice and honey together.Mix the salt and chilli powder together.
3. Add the chilli powder salt mixture to the lime juice mixture and add the guavas and toss gently.
4. Toss in some cilantro and serve on the side as a salad, with chips or relish ( heard that it tastes great on fish).
