The season is about to change. We are almost done with winter now and I am glad that summer is arriving because I am all set to prepare various coolers, sides, main course dishes using the seasonal ingredients.
To prep it up in a better way, I am already getting some hands on trying umpteen recipes which even includes the usage of fruits which can be served as sides or accompaniments.
For instance, Mango Salsa and Mango Avocado Salsa are some of those combinations which have bestowed me delicious results.
Hence, I thought, why not start experimenting more with fruits?
So, the other day, just like I had ideated the recipe for Fruit Raita, on the spur, I even thought and made lip-smacking Amrood ki Chutney.
One of the most signature recipes made by my grandmother, this chutney is a spicy, tangy and slightly pungent accompaniment that always gives you #FoodComa.
Prepared in like minutes, with a good mix of just ripened guava, garlic greens, coriander, spices and a dash of lemon – it brings the raw flaours of Indian cuisine back on your plate.
And the fact that guava being full of fiber cleans our stomach, moreover, it also works as an antioxidant, combats cancer, enhances circulation, reduces cholesterol level – gives one all more reasons to make this side for the sheer benefit it grants to our health.

Use just ripened guavas to make this chutney. The slightly sour taste in them gives a very nice flavour to the chutney.
Do not over grind the chutney otherwise it will become pasty. We want a slightly coarser texture.
