Here I am sharing  a quick and easy pickle recipe of Guava with less oil and less ingredients.

Guava has lot of healthy benefits.They are rich in vitamin A and vitamin C with seeds that are rich in poly saturated fats especially dietary fiber.A single fruit contains over four times the amount of vitamin C  as a single  orange.From now onwards, do not try to peel the skin as its rind is rich in vitamin C.

I have seen in some Food Network cookery shows that its leaves are used in barbeques.The reason they are using it is that it provides a nice smoked flavor and  scent to the meat.

Usually I eat the seedless fruit without skin or sometimes blend smoothie with guava.But after knowing about the healthy facts, I started including guava in my daily fruit bowl.Smile .This recipe is adapted from a Malayalam magazine and hope you all like this recipe.
