If you happen to spot fresh guavas in the market, think of making Jayanti Soni's quick Guava Chilly Chutney.

A khatti-meethi chutney, it can be enjoyed with garma garam chaitime snacks and even had at breakfast with hot theplas or parathas.

Jayanti, a Rajasthani food expert who spent part of her childhood in Bhinmal, Jalore, on the Gujarat-Rajasthan border, is big on presenting seasonal recipes as and when it's their turn.
