This is a bright, colorful, and refreshing fruit chaat (snack) that can also be used as a fruit salad. My siblings and I looked forward to the fruit chaat, served regularly as part of our lunch.  It was a delicious way of eating a great variety of fresh, seasonal fruit.  This by itself will brighten up any meal, and it tastes great at any time of day.

Recipe will serve 4.


  • 2 oranges skin removed and sliced in ½ inch each segment
  • 1 apple peeled and cubed into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 firm banana sliced into approximately ¼ inch rounds
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup English or Asian cucumber cubed into ¼ inch pieces
  • 1 green chili finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro


  • Approximately 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Approximately 1 tablespoon ginger juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin seeds powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black salt (optional) available in Indian grocery store
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine the fruit and cucumber with the green chili and cilantro. Toss and set asidea .
  2. Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl, making sure the sugar is completely dissolved. Pour the dressing over the fruit when ready to serve.


I have used many different varieties of fruits in this chaat dish; however, I always keep the oranges and bananas, as they add a lot of color and texture to the dish.

    Manjulaji, please let me know if I can put mango in fruit chaat. Also, when I put lemon juice on bananas, how long will the bananas stay fresh without turning black?
    Thanks a lot.
