GUAVA CHEESE




GUAVA CHEESE
Guava Cheese is a ‘Sweet Conserve’ made of ripe guavas and Sugar. It is a chewy Fudge like Sweet that is most always prepared at Christmas time. It is a cousin of the Portuguese desert ‘Goiabada’ or Guava Paste. It is also known as ‘Perad” in Goa. This is an old Anglo-Indian favourite and is relished by one and all.
 As per Wikipedia “Goiabada"  originated from the Portuguese word ‘Goiaba” which means guava, is a popular dessert throughout the Portuguese-speaking countries of the world, dating back to the colonial days in Brazil, where guavas were used as a substitute for the ‘quinces’ that were used to make marmelada or quince cheese’.
 Ingredients
6 ripe guavas preferably the pink variety
¾ cup sugar
50 grams unsalted butter
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
A drop of cochineal colouring

Wash and cut the guavas into quarters and boil them well in a little water till nice and soft.  Mash well, then strain through a thin cloth and throw away the skin and seeds.

Boil the strained thick juice with the sugar and keep on stirring till the mixture turns slightly thick. Add the butter, vanilla essence and cochineal. Simmer till nice and thick. Pour onto a buttered plate. Cut into squares when cold.

COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHICKEN




COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHICKEN
An old Colonial dish that was cooked very often in Anglo-Indian homes in the olden days. There are many versions of the recipe for this delectable dish, but this recipe is from an old handwritten book of recipes of my grandmother. 
Serves 6   Time required: 40 minutes
Ingredients:
1 kg chicken cut into medium size pieces     
4 large onions sliced finely
2 teaspoons chillie powder
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
3 tablespoons oil
Salt to taste
2 teaspoons ginger garlic paste
2 small sticks cinnamon
4 cloves
6 or 8 whole pepper corns                              
2 Dry Red Chillies broken into bits

Heat oil in a pan and fry the onions cinnamon, cloves, red chillie and pepper corns till golden brown. Remove half the fried onions and keep aside. Add the chicken to the pan and mix in the ginger garlic paste and sauté for about 5 minutes on medium heat. Add the chillie powder, turmeric powder, and salt. Mix well and stir fry for a few minutes. Add ½ cup of water and cook till the chicken is tender and the gravy is quite thick. Now add the remaining browned onions and mix well. Simmer for a few more minutes, then, turn off the heat. The gravy should be quite thick so that it coats the pieces of chicken nicely.
Note: This recipe can be adapted to meat as well. Left over Beef or Lamb Roast can be made into a delicious Country Captain Fry or a cold meat curry if desired.
