Guava curry/ Amrood ki sabzi

I love to have guava with some salt and red chilli pd topped on it  . When i was schooling my mom used to prepare this subzi with chappathi's / roti's and packed our lunch , my friends just loved this curry a lot and used to ask me for it . When guavas are in season my mom never forgets to make this curry at least 2 twice ..Guava as such has so many health benefits-they are rich source of Vitamin C, potassium, iron, fibre and pectin. It helps to lower the blood pressure and cholesterol , sugar in diabetics etc ..


500 gm firm, ripe Guavas
1 tbsp oil or ghee
1 tsp mustard seeds
A pinch of asafoetida or hing powder
1 tsp red chilli pd
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. coriander powder
1/4 tsp. chilli powder or to taste
1-2 tbs. sugar, adjust to taste
1/4 tsp. Garam Masala
1 sprig chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste


  • Remove top and stalk ends of guavas and chop into bite size pieces.
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Add mustard seeds and asafoetida. When seeds splutter,add turmeric, coriander powder, red chilli powder, salt  on chopped guava and stir fry them .
  • Add 1 cup of water and bring to boil. Amount of water depends on how thick a gravy you want.
  • Turn heat to minimum and cook until guavas are soft but not mushy.
  • Add garam masala, sugar and coriander leaves. Turn off the  heat and your delicious curry is ready to serve.
  • Serve them hot with Poories or Parathas or Chapatties.
