Clean your fridge salad

Mix Fruit Salad with Roasted Potato Fries

Mix Fruit Salad with Roasted Potato Fries brings back one of my very vivid memory. In my home country, I used to visit a very famous book store on one of busy shopping plaza called - Connaught Place. More than looking for books, I always loved getting chance to eat from a "Fruit Chaat Wala" (Person selling

Fruit Chaat on the side of road in a small cart). He always roasted potato fries on a huge hot iron tawa (skillet) that filled whole plaza will amazing potato fries aroma. Once you place order for chaat, he will fill a bowl of fruit and ripe diced tomatoes, add some lemon juice, spices and top it with pan fried potatoes fries. Oh, super delicious and amazing!!!

I can still sniff the same aroma while writing this post - in my imagination of course. Today's salad is my take on that mouthwatering Fruit Chaat and a tribute to an excellent road side chef who made people lick their fingers eating his chaat.
