Pink Guava Ice-cream with Chilli Powder| With Video Recipe
Pink Guava Ice-cream with Chilli Powder-Are you wondering about this homemade guava ice cream with just 4 ingredients. Yes, it is creamy, has a natural guava flavour without any added flavours and sprinkled red chilli powder on top! Ice cream with Guava flavour? I first had this at a Bombay Kulfi that opened last year in my city. A small disc of natural guava kulfi cut into triangles and dusted with red chilli powder; I was amazed at this combo but bowled over by the taste. I have tasted Mexican chocolates which have cayenne peppers in it! But this has such a local tang to it.
When you dig into this ice cream, you get the buzz of the guava, the spicy topping on the top juxtaposed with the condensed milk and cream. Please do try this hopelessly lip-smacking and easy peasy Guava Ice cream and fall in love with it as I did.

Homemade guava ice cream with just 4 ingredients
2 large pink guava or 250 gms

Firstly, dice the guava into four parts. Scoop out the seed part if it is too hard with a paring knife.
Set aside half a guava chopped into tiny pieces to add crunch to the ice cream.
Chop roughly into chunks. Place in a blender along with one cup of water.
Do not blend it till smooth as you do not want to crush all the seeds.

Give it a speedy whisk and add the blended guava puree.
