Fruitilicious Pani Puri

Met my friends today for chaat party. Yes, we are all chaat is sweet, spicy, tangy... basically chatpata just like all my girl friends!! :) And while we had thought to meet for a summer chaat party, there has to be chilled pani puri on our menu.

If you remember my two year back post on Guava Pani Puri, it was the recipe created for chaat party with my same girl friends. They had loved the sweet, spicy and tangy flavor of Guava Pani so it was now time to create something different. With fruits available in my refrigerator and few fresh fruits growing in my yard, it was easy to make this quick and delicious pani.

Pani Puri is a crisp puffed puri/waffer stuffed with moong and potato stuffing and dunked into sweet and tangy pani. The entire puri is then eaten for burst of flavors and textures. And, I promise you will be addicted to this one.

Fruitilicious is a delicious fruit cocktail pani: a combination of traditional pani with sweetness and flavors of fresh fruit juice. My family and my friends loved gotta try this.

Ingredients: (serves 6-8)
1 whole fresh pineapple
2 fresh apples
2 cups black grapes
2 cups fresh blackberries
4-5 plums
6-8 fresh mint leaves
1 tsp. raw cumin seeds
2 green chilies
1/2 inch ginger
3-4 tbsp. sugar (if needed depending on the sourness of the fruit) OR 5-6 dates for sweetness
1-2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
2-3 tsp. rock salt (or to taste)
1 tsp. amchoor powder (dry mango powder)
3-4 cups ice
  • Remove the skin of the pineapple and chop it into large chunks. 
  • Remove seeds of apple and chop it into large chunks.
  • De-seed plums and keep it aside 
  • Wash grapes and blackberries.
  • Finally add all the prepped fruits into a blender with mint, cumin, ginger, and green chilies. Blend well. Use a strainer to strain the mixture and remove the pulp.  
  • Add 3-4 cups of ice to the fruity mixture.
  • Add sugar, salt, rock salt, and amchoor powder. Mix well. Give it a taste test and add salt or rock salt if needed.
  • Let it rest for 30 minutes to an hour in the refrigerator before serving.
  • Serve with crisp puris and moong chana and potato mixture.
