About this recipe
This Guava dipping sauce was a thought that came to my mind while eating a fully ripened Guava. If Guava turns fully ripened , it turns yellow and it will be more sweet and fully soft. I prefer to eat guava , when its hard rather than eating ripen fruit. As there was a batch of over ripened Guava , I turned it into a dipping sauce . First time when I tried , it was good. Later , over the period of time tried it several 2-3 times to balance out flavors and texture. I must say , this fruit dip blows off your mind, Its a bomb. Tastes really good. Try it !
Facts about Guava

Hence its called a Negative Calorie Fruit and is the best for Weight Loss .
Guavas are a low GI fruit and do not raise blood sugar levels. It is the best fruit for hormonal imbalances. Diabetics and heart patients can also enjoy this fruit.
