Fruit chaat recipe | delhi street fruit chat recipe

Fruit chaat -  An ideal option for calorie conscious people. A  smart way in which a smart mom can ensure that her kids eat variety of seasonal fruits that too without any fuss .
You can even have it during fast (vrat or upwas) be it navratri or ramadan. If making for fasting replace normal salt with black salt (sendha namak).

It  is sold in the street corners of Delhi. Fruit chaat, as the name suggests, is a blend of assorted fruits  tossed with potatoes and a delectable blend of chutneys. Any combination of fruits can be used according to the seasonal availability and personal preferences. This chaat is packed with nutrients and is also low in calories.

I had made it using banana ,chickoo ,pomegranate ,apple &,cucumber , amla (indian gooseberry), mausambi .But you can make it with any fruits of your choice which are available in your home.You can even add boiled potato & boiled sweet potato or boiled chole  in the chat .If oranges are not  in the season then ready made orange juice is added.

Difference between fruit salad & fruit chat is that former is sweet in taste but later is a bit spicy & tang.

1/2 cup pomegranate 
1 large apple, cubed
1/2 sweet lime (mausambi) - peeled into segments
