Chatpat Fruit Chaat

Chatpat Fruit Chaat

As said an apple a day keeps doctor away, but eating the same fruit over and over can get pretty boring and pretty soon that particular fruit joins the do not eat list.One way to beat this and to add some excitement would be Fruit Chaat.Sweet from fruits,tangy from chaat masala and tarty from Lemon juice, all these flavors blend well to give you a delicious snack or this is can also be served an appetizer and oh ya this is fat free and can be eaten without guilt cloud hanging.

I had this a while ago at dinner at a friends place who is a Delhi native.Apparently this is sold as street food.It tastes best when dressed right before eating.If made earlier it kind of tends to get soggy and some of the fruits loose their crunchiness.
So pre cut fruits and mix the chaat masala right when guest arrive or when you get hit by sugar bug

1 cup of any fruits ( today I used Apples,Pears, Kiwi, Banana) other options that would gel well are berries like strawberry, Blueberries, Anar Dhaana(Pomegranate seeds), also Watermelon tastes extremely good.

Chaat Masala
1 tspn Chaat masala
1/2 tspn Black Salt (kala Namak)
1/2 tspn Black Pepper
1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tbsp of honey (optional)
1. Clean all the fruits and cut into equal sized cubes
2. Just before eating/serving add Lemon juice, Chaat masala, fresh ground pepper, and black salt
3. If most of the fruits are of tarty nature add a drizzle of honey
4. Toss well and serve

And this makes for your 5 a day of colors/fruits
