Fruit salad sold in busy streets across India is
spicy, and tangy. Spices such as chili powder, cumin
seeds, mango powder impart zesty flavor for the fruits
in Indian fruit salad. This fruit salad is also known
as "Fruit Chaat".
2 cups 1/2 inch papaya pieces
1 cup 1 inch mango pieces
1 cup 1 inch apple pieces
1 Tbsp agave nectar
1 Tbsp lime juice
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/8 tsp cumin seeds or ground cumin
1/8 tsp salt
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Serve
immediately, as the salad tends to become soggy after
a couple of hours.
Use ripe tropical fruits such as guava, pineapple,
banana, and grapes to make fruit salad. Avoid over
ripe fruits to make this salad, as you don't want the
salad to be soggy.
