A popular street food in Eastern India and Bangladesh, masala pyara is a sort of spicy guava salad. It is made from ripe large, green guavas common to the region.
A mint chutney serves as a base, while strong spices give this dish complex and deep flavor. A dash of coconut milk calms the spicy and makes the dish more cohesive. The guava gives a wonderful crispy texture. Cilantro garnish adds a great herbal element and fresh, green presentation. This dish works great as a snack and can be paired with other dishes as a side.
