FRUIT SALAD WITH JELLY
Its Yo’s birthday and he loves sweets. I had already prepared Aamras(Mango pulp sweet) for the main course and wanted to prepare something special for the dessert, I wanted it to be quick, nutritious and exotic, what better than Fruit salad.
I had already prepared Jelly the earlier day. Since, I am a strict vegetarian. I prepared Weikfield Jelly which uses a vegetarian formula and doesn’t use gelatine (an animal derivative), which is normally used in Jelly powders available in the market. I had a few fruits at home and bought a few seasonal fruits from the market. Within 5-7 minutes I had this exotic dessert ready and sent it to the refrigerator to be chilled before Yo arrives for his grand birthday lunch.
Apples – 2
Bananas – 2
Mango – 1 diced
Chicku – 2
Diced Pineaapples – 1 cup
Grapes - 1/2 cup
Milk – 2 cups
Condensed milk – 4 tbsps
Vanilla powder – 1 tsp
Roasted cashew nuts – 1 tbsp
1 packet of Weikfield Jelly Mix (Raspberrry Flavor)
Prepare the jelly according to the instructions on the packet and allow to set. Boil the milk and wait for it to cool. Chop the apples into thin squares as apple doesn’t absorb the flavors so fast. Peel and cut the bananas into roundels. Peel and cut the mangoes into cubes. Use ripe and sweet mangoes. Cut the chickus into cubes also. Diced pineapples and a cup of red seedless grapes, these were all the fruits I had, you can add any fruits of your choice or seasonal fruits available.
Mix Vanilla powder in the cool milk
In a big bowl, put in all the chopped fruits, add in the condensed milk and toss, then add in the milk. While serving put in this exotic fruit mix and top it up with jelly. Decorate with roasted cashew nuts. Serve chilled. You can even top it up with a scoop of your favorite ice-cream. Enjoy this exotic and nutritious dessert.
I would like to send this exotic dessert to Priti of Indian Khana who is hosting Festive food – Summer Treat.
