Guava Chat, a famous street snack in Kolkata, is known for its spicy and tangy taste. The refreshing aroma and flavour linger in the senses for a long time.
Guavas are cut into small pieces and hand-blended with chilli, spices, mint leaves, and lime. The dish is served in eco-friendly folded newspapers or sal leaves made into bowls. The mouth-watering tang and the friendly vendors bring smiles to hundreds of faces every day.
Guava chaat or ‘Peyara Makha’ can be found in many streets of Kolkata and is available in a pocket pinch. Be it summer, monsoon, or winter, ‘Peyara makha’ is the city’s favourite.
