Chilled Fruit chat

I just love summer when you really enjoy these fruits in different forms.After posting many shakes,juices and mocktails  here is one more to dish to tickle our taste buds it is called fruit chat..This fruit salad/chat i can be tried at any season and kids will love this because of spicy and tangy flavour.You can try this with other fruits too.
                     I normally prepare this just before the lunch as it takes only few mins and keep it in the fridge to chill.Here in India it is  served  in marriage functions  and you also get this in street corners .But i prefer home made chats because its fresh and clean.

Mixed fruit of your choice-2 cups
Chat masala-1/2tsp
Pepper powder-1/4tsp
Lemon juice-1tsp

  • Mix all the fruits,lemon juice and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 30 min.
  • Just before serving add all the ingredients and serve.
  • You can use tooth picks or fruit picks to make it more interesting
