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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Dressing

  • 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

Method

  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.

Tips

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.

  6. Love your recipes, very tasty.
    But I have a concern about combining sweet and sour fruits together. Example banana and oranges. I know it is very popular way to combine, but since you are concerned about health ( I remember one video or comment you said about not eating garlic), I thought to let you know.

    1. Anna, can you better explain your concern about the fruit combination so the rest of us understand? Thanks, Jaya

  7. Namaste Aunty,

    How did you peel these oranges like this? I tried but it did not come out in cubes as yours :( Any tips?

    Regards
