Choco-Fruit Delight


I keep experimenting with recipes and trying out different combinations of ingredients. These efforts yield some real good recipes, which are liked by my family. I post such tried and tested recipe on my site. This is one such recipe.

Fruits can be eaten as dessert, preferably 30 minutes after a meal. Fruits dressed with other ingredients are better received than the plain fruit salad. This mixed fruit dessert has the enriching taste of milk and chocolate. What’s more? This yummy fruit dessert can be served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream or both! Give it a try!

Ingredients: (serves two)
Papaya – peeled, cut into small cubes, 1 teacup or 200ml measure (பப்பாளிப் பழம்)
Orange – 1no, peeled, deseeded
Sapota or Sapodilla – 1no, peeled, cut into cubes (சப்போட்டா)
Dates – 4-5, deseeded and chopped
Raisins – 1 teaspoon
Cashew nuts – 1 teaspoon (optional)
Condensed milk – 3 tablespoons
Chocolate sauce – 2 tablespoons

Note: You may add other fruits of your choice such as apple, mango, banana, seedless grapes or sweet lime. The ingredients mentioned here are sufficient to for 2 teacups (400ml) of mixed fruits. If you are adding other fruits, adjust the ingredients accordingly.


Method: Wash, peel, deseed and cut papaya and sapodilla into small cubes. Peel the orange, deseed and remove the flesh. Deseed and chop the dates. Mix the fruits with raisins and cashew nuts in a bowl. Add the condensed milk on top to cover the fruits. Add chocolate sauce evenly over the dessert. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. On standing, the condensed milk and chocolate sauce trickle down to the bottom. Mix very well before serving. This dessert tastes best when served chilled.
