Guava and date curry-

Posted by in Dinner, Fruit, Healthy Living, Indian, Lunch, Paleo, Side Dish

My parents home had a guava tree in the back yard.  I remember a lot of innovative ways guavas were consumed.  We had guava jelly, guava salad, guava with curd.  I also remember chewing the leaves and then sticking out a guava sap whitened tongue at my brothers.  I thought I would get punished, but what I did not anticipate was that my mother would get shocked at the white tongue coated with guava sap and rush me to the doctor.  Yes, guava brings back childhood memories.

The farmers market has a lot of semi ripe guavas right now.  I decided to make a sweet and sour curry with the hard guavas.
