Guava and Mint Chutney or Dip

Guava and Mint Chutney

Whoever thought of Guava and Mint Chutney or Dip must have been a diehard foodie. A sweet and tangy chutney with guavas, lemon, chillies and fresh mint, this Chutney is another way to consume the magnificent yet humble guava. A dash of lime juice, green chillies along with the fruit’s natural sweetness makes this chutney a delectable dip.

Guava

I have never had a liking for apples but Guava has been one of my favourite fruits. It has just not been given its due. The guava tree in my backyard is small but yields humongous fruit and they cut like a coconut; crisp and sweet.Guava is the super fruit of the new age,  due to the numerous health benefits it offers. It is brimming with nutrients, is extraordinarily rich in vitamin C, and is beneficial for skin.Mint is an all time favourite and growing wild in my garden. The taste is much more enhanced with fresh organic produce from my garden.

This Guava Chutney is very simple to make. There is no cooking or tempering needed; just put all the ingredients together and blend them in a mixer-grinder.

The sweet guava, when combined with Mint along with a squeeze of lime, gives the chutney a remarkable and refreshing flavour while the green chillies make it spicy.
