Fruit Chaat, Indian Fruit Salad

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.

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.

  2. 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?

  5. 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.
