Tastes wonderful on toast! My mother's recipe and its foolproof. The beauty of it is that there are no fixed measurements. I make my jelly sometimes with just four guavas. Other times, it may be for 5 lbs...the measurements of all the ingredients increase or decrease depending on the liquid extracted.
My mom received many kudos for making this dish many years ago. Never very good at describing recipes, she vaguely gave me directions. I have been making this now for many years but its the first time its been properly written down. I'm sure, were she around, she'd be happy now to give it to anyone who asked for it!
These are unleavened Indian Breads. When cooked with oil they are called 'parathas' and when without oil, they are referred to as 'chapathis'. Have them with any curry and taste best when eaten hot - straight from the fire and onto your plate!
Prep time includes marination time. A permanent item on the table when the flavor is Chinese! It freezes well, although there's never ever left to do so! Also, as a variation, I often follow the recipe till the marination and frying, while omitting the rest, and serve them as chicken fritters for snacks. Goes very well with drinks too!
Dedicated to Charishma and all those trying to lose weight! A great low cal salad to be had as an accompaniment to the main dish. Or, throw in some grilled chicken slivers and have a complete meal by itself.
Strange as it may sound, broccoli is one of the more exotic (and recently made popular) vegetables now available in India. Not quite adopted into our Indian cuisine, one has to create and find innovative ways to cook it. I generally tend to just steam it and use it in salads. This one is to be had raw, after having been marinated overnight. A great idea for the relish tray.
