For Ramadan, the best way to open our fasts is the fruit salad as it boosts our energy while leveling the body temperature.
Here is the easy-peasy recipe for the tempting fruit salad only on glittercut.com.
Ingredients (serves 4-5)
Apples 1 (chopped)
Banana 1 (chopped)
Orange 1 (chopped)
Mango 1 (chopped)
Grapes a small bunch (cut into halves)
Dates 3-4 cut
Milk 1/2 cup
Condensed milk 4 Tbsp (optional)
Cream 4 Tbsp (optional
Pomegranate 1 (peeled)
Dry fruits chopped: (almonds, pistachio, cashew nuts)
Vanilla ice cream
Rooh afzah (concentrated squash)
In a bowl add all the chopped fruits, mix well while making sure you do not smash the fruits in the process. (you wouldn’t want to end up making a fruits puree out of all the vigorous mixing :p)
Once the fruits are mixed well, add the half cup of milk along with the cream or condensed milk. Dry fruits can also be added to the dish as per your preference.
Your fruit salad is ready.
Serve the fruit salad in the serving bowls or dishes, then top it off with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream, drizzle 1 tspn of Rooh Afzah syrup and on top of it all drop the pomegranate arils (seeds) and dry fruits. This makes the fruit salad look tempting, colorful and irresistible.
In your fruit salad, you can add any fruits, but, you can avoid watermelon, as it will make the fruit salad very watery and loose its authentic taste. Also, avoid guava as its seeds can be an impediment in relishing the dish.
Adding milk to the fruit salad keeps the apples and the bananas from turning black.
You can add condense milk or sweet cream depending how much more flavor you prefer to add.
Ice cream need not necessarily be vanilla, it can be any ice cream of your choice, but, it goes best with vanilla ice cream.
Fruits salad is best enjoy when had immediately, it can however refrigerated for a day or two.
