Guava and Peanut salad

This guava and Peanut salad can be served along with a meal or eaten just wrapped in a Chapati. Tone down the spices and you can eat it as is. This lovely recipe shared by my friend Shweta Sabnis is a must try.


1 large guava chopped

10 roasted peanuts halved

1/2 tsp chilly powder

A pinch of turmeric powder

1 tbsp grated jaggery


For the tempering:

1 tsp oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

A pinch of Hing/ Asafoetida

A sprig of curry leaves


Tip the chopped guava, peanuts, chilly powder, turmeric, grated jaggery and salt in a bowl. Mix well and refrigerate. Heat the oil in a pan. Drop in the mustard and after it splutters add the cumin seeds. After they splutter add the Asafoetida and curry leaves. Allow the seasoning to cool a little before tipping it into the salad. Mix well and serve chilled.
