Vegan Guava Tamarind Delight
Chef Shankar Krishnamurthy serves up a dessert made of only seasonal winter fruits. This vegan delicious dessert has the sweet and sourness of the tamarind, smoothness of coconut yoghurt and the textured graininess of the guava.
Guava is rich in Vitamin C that keeps you from the risk of infections and illness. Also, this local tropical fruit contains lycopene–a plant nutrient. The presence of Vitamin C and lycopene helps to improve your immunity and offers several other health benefits. Lycopene has anticancer properties. Studies show that consuming lycopene rich foods reduces the risk of several types of cancer, mainly prostate cancer. It suppresses the production of cell cycle responsible for amplification of cancer.
Guava, also known as Amrood is one of the most awaited seasonal fruits of winter. These round to pear-shaped fruits, with white, yellow or pink flesh is universally adored. Guava Tamarind Delight is a quality dish if you want to balance your blood sugar. The coconut sugar used in the dish contains only 75 percent sucrose compared to the standard table sugar.
