Fruit Cocktail

Looking at the array of fresh fruits in the markets, I am tempted to eat them as much as I can. Of late one of my favorite breakfasts and snacks has been fresh fruit. This fruit cocktail is a medley of flavors and colors which is filling and healthy. If you want to serve this to company, add some custard or sweet whipped cream while omitting the lemon, salt and pepper. 

Ingredients:

1 each - Mango, Apple, Pear, Banana
1 1/2 cups cubed papaya
3/4 cup pomegranate 
Juice of two lemons
Salt 
Pepper
Chaat masala (optional)

First release the seeds of the pomegranate. Then cut the papaya. Take care to not peel the skin too thin, else the papaya will taste bitter. Similarly, remove the flesh and seeds from the middle. Scrape the white lining along the inside as well. Next peel and cube the mango followed by the pear and apple. Pour the juice of the lemon over the fruits so they don't oxidize. Finally, chop the bananas. Put them in a large mixing bowl and add the salt and pepper to taste. You can also add chaat masala if you like. Chill for atleast an hour. Serve cold in a large goblet. Enjoy your cocktail!
