Guava Chutney

By looking at the title you must be confused, or wondering about my absent mind, instead of Guava Fruit Juice did i made the Chutney!!!!!! Don't worry, I am completely in my senses, what you saw is right. :-) There is a saying that if you add proper portions of Salt and Spices, even the Grass can be a new Dish. I think the Chef's in India are really turning Creative to make the above statement true. As you may know, Obviously this is not my Idea, but Recently When I went for wedding, I have witnessed this new Chutney made with this Wonderful Tropical Fruit Guava.  When they are serving, this chutney, I have asked several times 'Is this really made with Guava?' or did i heard it wrong. (Who can imagine, you can make a chutney with this rare fruit.) After they confirmed, I have tasted it and surprised that it is very tasty and could not make it out that it made with a fruit. So I remembered all the flavors then to bring this to my blog readers. After coming home experimented this Chutney in my kitchen and presenting it for you, Today. This recipe is same as any other chutney recipe, you have to be just bold enough to use the Guava here. :-) Here is the recipe,Enjoy!

Guava Chutney

Guava - 2 small
garlic - 4 cloves
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
green chili - 2
tamarind - 1 Tbsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
sugar - 1 tsp
lime juice or vinegar - 1 tsp
salt - 1 tsp ( according to your taste)


Tempering Ingredients

1. Cut the stems of guava on top and bottom , Wash and pat dry them
2. Cut into 4 slices and remove the seeds part. and cut the wedges into small cubes.
3. Heat oil in the non stick pan, add cumin seeds.
4. followed by garlic, green chili and tamarind.
5. Add the guava cubes to pan and fry it for 3 min.
6. Add the Sugar and simmer for 1 more min.
7. Let this mixture cool and grind all the ingredients in the mixie along with salt and lime juice. ( use water little as needed)
9. Now Take it into a serving bowl and top with Tempering.

To get the Goodness of this, Serve this over Hot White Rice with Ghee. Hmmm Yum, Yum...


  • Sugar and Lime Juice will remove the tartness of Guava.
  • You have to pick the Raw Guava ( not the ripe one)
  • The texture of this chutney will be little rough compare to other chutneys. This feels similar to Chintakaya Pachadi (Raw Tamarind Chutney).
  • If you use pink Guavas, you will light pink color in your chutney. ( But i prefer white Guavas for this)

Take Care until next time we meet here..
