PostSubject: Guava Curry   Sat Jun 26, 2010 3:09 pm

This was my grandmother’s remedy for cold, fever, flue, loss of appetite, depression and so on. If any one used to be sick she used to prepare this.

Guava- Curry...

Handful fresh tender guava leaves

½ inch garlic piece

3-4 green chilies

100 gm. of guava fruit’s pieces finely chopped (shouldn’t too ripe or raw)

400gm of fresh Dahi or Curds/yogurt

¼ tea-spoon freshly crushed peeper

1 tea-spoon of Cumin powder

4-5 granules of Ajwine (optional)

1 table spoon of butter or Desi ghee

1 teas-spoon of cumin seeds

1 pinch of asafetida (hing)

1 tea-spoon of dried mango powder or Tamarind paste (optional)

Salt to taste

Wash Guava leaves and pat dry. Melt little butter in a pan. Then fry guava leaves for a minute. Then make a paste of these leaves, ginger and green chilies in a mixer. Add a glass of water to yogurt, mix well or churn. If the curd is not that sour, only then add dried mango powder or tamarind paste to make it little sour.

In a sauce-pan, heat butter. Then add cumin seeds. When cumin seeds cackle, add asafetida. Then add finely chopped/minced guava fruit and the paste. Fry till half minute. Add the granules of Ajwine. (If a person has got fever then avoid this) Then add curd / yogurt which is mixed well with water. Then add peeper powder, cumin powder and salt to taste. Then immediately take the sauce-pan off the flames. Serve this with hot Basmati rice or you can drink this as a soup. (A bowlful of this soup is very healthy, complete food.)

If any one used to suffer from cough, she used to replace Guava leave, chopped fruit with pomegranate leaves and bowlful of pomegranate seed. (But then the taste wasn’t as good as guava at least I used to feel this). When a person used to suffer from anemia or weak-ness she used to replace Guava leaves,chopped fruit with Opum leaves(naagwel or paan leaves)but I didn't like that taste and if from in-digestion, flatulence then ajwine leaves were used
