I am so pleased to share with you the next recipe in my series: Monica’s Indian Express: Simple & Sassy Weeknight Dishes.
This dish celebrates summer! It is yours to make as you like. I am just here for providing you with some thoughts and baselines… oh, and of course, spice!
I have made this dish for parties and it is always a hit. You can layer it with the fruits of your choice. Each layer needs a fruit and a spice or herb combination. This really wakes up the fruits and makes them rock!
So here is what I did –
1. Bottom layer is guava with a touch of sugar and ginger juice (peeled grated ginger squeezed)
2. Next up is strawberry.. it is diced and paired with mint.
4. My last layer of fruit is fresh mangoes and I spiked them with a touch of saffron. A touch.
I topped it all with crispy sev.. they are thin crisp noodles.. these are gramflour noodles that add a crunch. You can use it for this dish and also as a snack.. forget potato chips, these crunchy babies are amazing!
Choose your choice of fruits and spices and remember that the spices should be used with a very, very light hand. You dont want them to overpower the fruits but to let.
