Are you curious to explore different tastes and cuisines while testing your cooking skills? We’re here to help! UCL’s Pakistan Society treated us to a wonderful recipe that’s not only easy to make (for those of you that would rather avoid the hassle), but also deliciously nutritious… Discover how to make a Seasonal Fruit Chaat below:
PREP TIME:15 minutes
• 1 medium oranges
• 1 medium apricots, halved and pitted
• ½ medium peach or nectarine, halved and pitted
• 3 large strawberries, stems removed
• 6 cherries, pitted
• 3 ounces blueberries (about 1 1/4 cups)
• 1 teaspoons chaat masala (see Recipe Note)
• 1.5 medium bananas
1. Cut around the oranges to remove the peel and the white pith. Slice the oranges, then cut into small dice. Place in a large bowl.
2. Cut the bananas, apricots, peach or nectarine, and strawberries into small dice (the same size as the oranges) and add to the bowl.
3. Quarter the cherries and add to the bowl. Add the blueberries and chaat masala, toss gently to combine, and let sit to macerate 5 to 10 minutes.
4. Peel and thinly slice the bananas. Add the bananas and mint to the bowl, and mix gently to combine.
Chaat masala: Chaat masala is a sweet-sour-spicy spice blend from South Asia.
Fruit cutting: The fruit can be cut in any desired size.
Traditionally, the fruit is cut pretty finely, but it’s up to personal taste.
Fruit selection: The amount of fruit in this recipe is based on preference! There isn’t a set rule to the quantities; If you like oranges, I use more oranges! Increase your favourites and omit what you don’t like!
Storage: Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
