I had a mini heart-attack when I checked the date of the last post on my beloved website. Yes, it’s been more than 3 months since I posted a new recipe. Let me apologize to my dear readers. The last few months kept me on my toes. A month long Kerala vacation, a wedding in the family, an international trip and of course lack of regular internet access were all reasons for my absence. Well, I am hoping to be more regular in 2013 with lots of good food and recipes.
Let me start with a super simple Fruit and Vegetable Salad with a touch of Indian spices. Apples, Cucumbers, Carrots, Mini Sweet Peppers, Raisins and a handful of roasted nuts, spiced with Indian Chaat Masala and Dried Mango Powder make this wonderful salad. Chaat Masala is a sweet and sour spice mix used in Indian Cuisine. When Chaat Masala is added to fruits, it is known as Fruit Chaat and is a popular street food.
- You can add fruits like orange, strawberry and pear to this salad.
- For a variation, try adding squeezed orange juice instead of lemon juice.
