A delightful fusion of tropical fruits, tangy citrus, and savory spices, this chickpea fruit chaat is a symphony of flavors and textures. The sweetness of the fruits is balanced by the acidity of the lemon and tamarind, while the spice mix adds a hint of warmth. The chickpeas provide a satisfying bite and a boost of protein.


  • Apple (1/2 kg)

  • Banana (1/2 kg)

  • Guava (1/2 kg)

  • Sugar (3 tablespoons)

  • Boiled chickpeas (2 cups)


  • Prepare the Fruits:
  • Dice the apple into small cubes, slice the banana, and dice the guava. Ensure the dice are neither too big nor too small; excessively small dice may result in a mushy appearance.

  • Cook Tamarind Sauce:
  • After soaking, pour the tamarind mixture into a pan and place it on medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of salt. Stir continuously until the solution thickens.
  • Combine Fruits and Chickpeas:
  • In a large bowl, add all the diced fruits and boiled chickpeas. Add the spice mix, pineapple slices, and grapes. Finally, add the boiled chickpeas and mix well.
  • Mix Citrus Juices:
  • Combine lemon juice and orange juice in a separate bowl.
  • Add Citrus Juices and Tamarind Sauce:
  • Pour the citrus juice mixture onto the fruit bowl. Finally, add the prepared tamarind sauce and some extra sugar to enhance the taste.
