Hello everyone! how was ur Sunday? Well mine is great! I started jogging on Sunday now and I cooked a delicious dessert and its great to enjoy on hot weather like we had right now in Indo. Yups after jogging, I stopped by at a traditional market to shop some fruits and I saw "Red" Guava. What first come to my mind was Guava soup! Hahah so I bought some and next thing I know I am busy cooking Guava Soup in the kitchen. Its easy to make and doesn't take much time to cook. Btw, I will post how Guava rich with vitamin C and antioxidant for Cancer etc on my Back to nature-Herbal.
Yes, go check it later lol.;-)
Now let me share the recipe of Guava Soup à la Dita.^^
What u need,
500 grams "Red" Guavas
(Cut into bite size pieces)
150 grams Palm sugar
4 cups of water
100 ml thick coconut milk
12 cm cinnamon stick
5 cm ginger (sliced)
1 Pandan leaf (tied in a knot)
1/2 ts Salt to rich the flavour
How to make,
*Bring water and the coconut milk to boil and simmer for around 2 mins.
*add ginger, cinnamon, pandan leaf to the simmering coconut milk
*Add palm sugar and stir till the palm sugar dissolves.
*Add salt and the guava and mix
* The guava should stay crounchy with its fresh color to maintain its nutrient benefits and vitamins so I always take it off the fire after less than 2 mins that is when the guava pieces are still floating. Yum Yum
*Remove the pandan leaf when it served.
*I found these after googling ok,
You can find Pandan leaf as herb, the essence is known as "Kewra" in Indian store or screw pine leaves in Asian stores- check the frozen section.
Bay leaf is a close alternative with a bit of tarragon and dried basil.
Or replace it with 1ts vanilla essence and stirr it just before you put off the heat.
