This is a bright, colourful, and refreshing fruit chaat (snack) that can also be used as a fruit salad. My siblings and I looked forward to the fruit chaat, served regularly as part of our lunch. It was a delicious way of eating a great variety of fresh, seasonal fruit. This by itself will brighten up any meal, and it tastes great at any time of day.
