Guava and Lady Apple Salad

This salad is pure simple joy for me. There is nothing spectacular or fancy in it but I love it! I love eating guavas sprinkled with some salt and red chili powder. These are often sold on the streets in India when guavas are in season......tucked in an old newspaper sprinkled with salt and some other spices. I paired the guavas with lady apples -  not to be confused with crab apples or lady pink apples. These are very small in size and have a unique flavor which is slightly sweet and tart. Any other tart apple would taste good too. And even if there are no apples it does not matter as the star here is guava.


1 guava (should not be over ripe)
2-3 lady apples
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder


Wash and dry the fruits. Cut the guava in half and scoop out the hard seeds with a spoon. Chop the the guava and apples. Sprinkle with salt and red chili powder. Mix and enjoy!
