Guava, when cooked with miscellaneous spice powders, a dash of jaggery and a traditional tempering transforms into an excellent accompaniment for rotis and puris . Remember, the proportion of seeded and deseeded guava is essential for achieving the perfect texture of your Peru Subzi.

You will not only enjoy the fruit-spicy flavour of this dish, but also benefit from the nutrients that guava gives you. It is one of the richest sources of fibre and a great source of vitamin C too. Although some of the fibre will be lost in straining and vitamin C will be lost while cooking the guava, there is still enough to do you a world of good!
