Guava – Hmm i am sure a fruit which no one would like to ever refuse to eat.I never realised that i would prepare guava pudding,the fruit which i used to eat raw since my childhood never heard about any recipes prepared from guava,but many sites they have their more experimented and delicious guava recipes now a days.
Guava is a tropical fruit that contains about four times the amount of vitamin C as an orange. Eating more guavas will be kept you healthier.
My mother who loves nature,had planted a guava tree in our front yard. I remember when rain or monsoon comes,the tree blossomed with flowers and laden with sweet amruds/guava.
Rest of the seasons the tree provides less guavas and has slight sourness in taste.Perhaps the monsoon water makes the fruit more sweeter than other seasons.:).Our big guava tree has growing branches fewer inside our home and more out side.So every passer by pluck fruit and enjoying a lot.
The reason of guava pudding is just because of lock down..Literally there were enough fruits and we cant distribute in neighbours,so i started experiment to prepare pudding from sweet and ripe guava.
Although the fruit it self is taste precious but when the fruit puree indulge with coconut milk make the pudding more silky and soaked basil are looking eye catching inside the pudding .
Relish this silky shiny and scrumptious pudding with full gratitude and joyful.
