Amrood aur anar fruit chaat -guava and pomegranate salad

guava pomegranate chaat

Religious fasts are very common. Coming up with various reasons to avoid regular meals and bring the focus over to taking care of oneself is the whole idea. The rules and regulations of many such fasts call for lighter eats or abstinence from food. For instance, fruits are the most preferred ones during fast.

Think about why fruits are the preferred foods during a fast.

it is a quick and zero fuss option

Caters to detox elements

light on the stomach are fruit fasts

lots of fibre and antioxidants.

Health perspective fasts are the ones that attract me more than religious fast.

Nevertheless, I am not a regular fast to lose weight kind of person. I would rather prefer,6 small meals with lighter choices.

One of the easy Indian inspired ones that love to pack up and feast on a fast is a fruit-based chaat. A mixture of fruits, a tiny bit of tang from the chaat masala (omit if you are doing a religious fast) and the minerals from crushed black salt I love it.

Red fleshed guavas

While visiting India, I grabbed these red and juicy guavas and literally hogged on them. When that was getting a bit boring for the kids, I introduced the amrood anar chaat and they got back on it right away. So here is the simple and easy guava pomegranate salad with Indian spices. The recipe works well with white regular guava also and sits perfectly well in the lunch box. Throw in a base of baby spinach, a handful of pepitas when you are trying to make this a whole lunch rather than aside. All said and done, you can’t get over the lovely hues of reds when you have this chaat. If you have more guavas, don’t forget to try the guava fresca.

That salad looks gorgeous. I haven’t eaten these pink guavas in years, I’m suddenly craving some after seeing this now 😀

Such a lovely combination of guava and pomegranate, not only a feast for the eyes but for the tummy too. Lovely clicks.

I love guava!!! Takes me back to school days when we used to buy cut guava from the vendor outside our school and he used to rub it with black salt and red chili powder. Adding roasted cumin and chaat masala will be so tasty! And I can imagine how pomegranate and peanuts will add a crunchy and juicy texture to the salad! Thanks for sharing 🙂

You took me back to my childhood days, when mom made guava and banana chaat with different fruits.. I miss guava so badly here, though I have seen some in stores but nothing like we get in India. The chaat looks so tempting with pretty colors!!
