Seasonal Fruit Chat With Kachalu

Seasonal Fruit Chat With Kachalu

Aaloo Kachalu beta kahan gaye the? Bengan Ki tokri mein so rahe the. Bengan ne lat mari Ro rahe the,Mummy ne pyar kiya hans rahe the. As a kid, all of us must have recited this poem I loved this poem so much that even now in the months of August, September, I keep on reciting it. You must be thinking why in these particular months?? Simple… as kachalu comes at this time of the year.

When I was a kid, there used to be a vendor outside my school who used to sell irresistible fruit chaat, that has lots of kachalu. As I was getting very small amount as pocket money, so it wasn’t possible for me to buy that chaat everyday. Whenever there was a chance to buy that chaat, I never missed it. I’m so obsessed by kachalu that during season, It’s always present in my fridge, though no one in my family is fond of kachalu. So my love for kachalu and the poem is childhood love ?.

Kids as usual are fussy about eating fruits. To make them eat fruits, that too in a variety, I usually make fruit chaat and for me kachalu is an integral part of chaat. I like my chaat spicy, but for kids I keep spice level low. I have used green chutney and tamarind chutney in this chaat to make it sweet and tangy. As far as fruits are concerned, you can use any seasonal fruit, but potatoes and bananas show up in all the seasons. I had some chana sprouts in my fridge, so used them as well. In a way,the fruit chaat is quite adjustable.
