Navratras are approaching real soon .... and i would like to share a childhood favorite and a wonderfully delicious dish to eat during navratri...
In Navratri we cannot consume the following items as a fast
Any Cereal ( wheat / rice / pulses)
Common salt - replaced by pink salt (sendha namak )
Any garam masalas
I will be sharing more Navratra recipes on and off for next few days and I hope you will like it.
I shared this recipe on Radio One 94.3 FM with RJ Arvind in his show Arvind's Kitchen.
2 large guavas ( less ripe) diced
1 tsp ghee
1 tsp grated ginger
2 green chilies chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp coriander powder
2 tsp kashmiri chili powder
1 tsp Raw Mango Powder ( amchoor )
1/2 cup yogurt
Chopped coriander leaves (optional )
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 tsp Sugar
1 cup water
Heat Ghee in a pan and temper with ginger and green chilies and saute till golden
Add the dry ingredients namely chili, coriander, raw mango powder, turmeric, salt, sugar, pepper
saute for a few seconds
Add guava dices and water and saute for a few mins and cook covered for 15 mins
The guavas will go soft and the water with thicken ad evaporate. make sure that the skin of the guava isn't green any more
Add yogurt and turn off the gas for some time ... switch on again after 5 mins and simmer till oil appears on the edges. This will prevent the yogurt from curdling.
