How to make Sweet Mixed Fruit Pachadi (a South Indian delicious mixed fruit accompaniment)

  1. Chop all fruits - halve Grapes if they are big,peel and chop Bananas,peel and dice Apples and Pear.
  2. Puree the Tomatoes with 1/4 cup water and keep aside.
  3. Add the water and sugar in a pan and when sugar melts add the Tomato puree.Cook on medium heat for 7 - 9 minutes till the sugar gets mixed with the puree and the mixture thickens slightly.Do not make the mixture too thick.
  4. Cool to room temperature and add the essence and colour if using.
  5. Put all the fruits in a glass/ceramic/steel container. Pour over the Tomato mixture and mix well. Cover the lid.Keep covered for 2 - 3 hours after which you would find the fruits would be immersed in their own delicious juices
  6. Refrigerate and use as needed

My Tip:

The Pachadi has a colour ingredient base - Tomato or Beetroot.If using beetroot,chop it in pieces and boil in water for 5- 6 minutes. Normally fruits of the season are used - a combination of Apple,Orange,Grapes,Banana,Pineapple and Pear are common. If the colour is a little dull then a few drops of deep red edible colour is used. This is optional People love Pineapple essence so in weddings a few drops of essence is added to the Pachadi.Again this is purely optional Store and serve the Pachadi preferably in glass,ceramic or stainless steel containers for a longer shelf life.Always keep it refrigerated. Its important to note that there is a minimal cooking time in this recipe.The Pachadi forms the "liquid" as the fruits continue to steep in the Tomato mixture.
