Fresh Fruits Chaat is quite a popular fasting recipe from Northern India. It can also be served as an evening snack. There are many variations to it. Some like to add only fruits, whereas others add boiled or pan-fried potatoes and sweet potatoes as well. No matter what you add, it always turns out delicious.
The uniqueness of the recipe lies in the interesting combination of spices, distinct flavors and textures of all the fruits in there.

This sweet, savory, and spicy Fresh Fruit Chaat is super nutritious and delicious in taste. I am so proud to mention that it’s my maternal grandmother’s time recipe. She used to add fruits like guava and papaya as well.
Then I saw my mom always preparing it during Navaratri Fasting with her favorite pomegranate arils.
Following her footsteps, I too create it with lots of love and fond memories.
