Guava Cheese

Guava cheese is a recipe without which Christmas feels incomplete, this dish dates back to the colonial days in Brazil. For me, this recipe has been close to my heart ever since I started making sweets because over the years I self-thought myself cooking and making goan sweets and guava cheese was one of the first sweets I ever made.


  • 4 Ripe Guava
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp Amul Butter


Prep: 15 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes

  1. Take the guava and cook on steam, then remove the seeds by slitting it the centre and then grind it in the grinder to get the pulp then strain it.
  2. Then in a heavy bottom pan add 1 cup pulp, 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice, ½ tbsp butter mix well and cook it on low flame till it comes together and leave the pan.
  3. Empty the mixture in a tin which is greased with butter and leave it aside to cool, once it cools down you can cut it into small pieces.
