you like chaat?

hmmm…. so if we combine fruits & chaat… then what do we get?

answer – fruit chaat

that was easy & and no prizes for guessing that…

so is not fruit chaat a fruit salad?

nope… in fruit salad there is no spicy or savory factor. in fruit chaat even the fruits become laden with the flavors of the spices.

the spice powders that are mainly used in fruit chaat are:

  • chaat masala
  • roasted cumin powder
  • red chili powder

the fruits retain their sweetness and yet are spicy and tangy to taste.

another difference – fruit chaat which is a popular street food in north india & pakistan has tuber roots along with the fruits – mainly potatoes and sweet potatoes

i asked hubby as he has grown up & lived in delhi, as to what are the fruits that make up in the chaat. his answer was the common fruits are papaya, banana, oranges, pomegranate, grapes, apples & pineapple.

so my next question was – are the potatoes fried or boiled? to which he replied the sweet potatoes are boiled and the regular potatoes are fried.

fried potatoes for fruit chaat

but weight and diet watchers – you can boil the potatoes instead of frying them.

to sum up i have also had fruit chaat in mumbai. but in mumbai we call it fruit salad and not chaat. only fruits are used – no tubers. just sprinkled with some chaat masala & black salt.

so now after reading this post and seeing the nice pics, it is time for you to head in your kitchen and make a spicy fruit chaat.

make use of seasonal fruits or whatever fruits are available in your area, like for e.g,  i used mangoes in the chaat. also i added fruits which i had in the kitchen.

also some contributions to add from one of the blog readers huma ahmed who is originally from lahore, pakistan. huma says that the chaat which they make  in their household and all the people she knows of – they make it with seasonal fruits.

potatoes are mainly used with chana chaat or dahi pakoris. boiled sweet potatoes by themselves with lemon juice and chaat masaala. if it is orange season, then orange juice is squeezed on the fruits and if not in the season then ready made orange juice is added.

summer is the best season for the fruits. since ramadan is going to start from next week, so this fruit chaat is a staple at the time of breaking fast. they use mangoes, apples, grapes, bananas, peaches, plums, apricots, pomegranate/anaar, guavas etc, with lemon juice, orange juice, and chaat masala.
