Fresh Fruit Platter| How To Make A Fresh Fruit Tray For A Party

Holi is just around the corner! Just a few more days to go before the festival of colours arrives!

If you are looking for an easy-peasy recipe that you can present at your Holi party, your search ends here. This fresh fruit platter is so very simple to prepare, yet so delish that it will surely win you accolades. The platter is as healthy as it gets, so you need not worry about calories either. Present the varied colours of Holi to your guests on a platter, all natural of course!

You can get as creative as you want with the arrangement of this fresh fruit platter or keep it really simple, as I have done here.

Here is how to make a fresh fruit tray for a party.

Ingredients for 1 fresh fruit platter (serves 2):

  1. 4-5 slices of pineapple, core and thorns removed
  2. 1 small Robusta banana, chopped into rounds
  3. 4-5 segments of orange, seeds and strings removed
  4. A handful of seedless green grapes
  5. 1/2 of an apple, chopped into thin slices
  6. A handful of pomegranate arils
  7. 4-5 medium-sized strawberries, cut into halves
  8. A few almonds
  9. Chaat masala, as required
  10. A dash of lemon juice
  11. Honey, as required

Method:

  1. On a wide platter, arrange all the fruits artistically.
  2. Drizzle some honey evenly over the fruits.
  3. Drizzle the lemon juice evenly over the fruits.
  4. Drizzle chaat masala evenly over it all.
  5. Arrange the almonds here and there, on the platter.
  6. Serve the fresh fruit platter platter immediately, with toothpicks on the side.

Notes:

  1. There are several ways to make a fresh fruit tray for a party, to present the cut fruits on the platter. I have kept it really simple here. You can go as creative with the arrangement as you want to.
  2. I haven’t peeled the apples here (I never do!), so I get the benefit of the beautiful red colour of the skin showing through.
  3. You can add in other fruits of your choice, mixed nuts, cheese, et al, to the fresh fruit platter. I have restricted myself to just a few Indian fruits here, and some almonds to add a crunchy effect.
  4. We like the lemon-honey-chaat masala dressing on fruits, so I have used the same in this fruit platter. You can choose any other dressing you want to.
  5. You may use slightly chilled fruits to make the platter. I have used all the fruits at room temperature here.
  6. I have used MDH chaat masala and honey from Bee Bliss to make this fresh fruit platter.
  7. You can use roasted peanuts (skins removed) for the crunch factor, instead of almonds, too.
  8. You can prepare the dressing by combining honey, lemon juice and chaat masala well together, and then drizzling it over the fresh fruit platter. I just used each of these ingredients separately.
