Cooking Method
To Prepare Tart Shells:
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, carom seeds, cumin seeds, r and salt. Using a pastry cutter or your fingertips, mix the cold butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Slowly add 2-3 tbsp ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  3. Form the dough into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a mini tart pan.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to about 1/8 inch thickness.
  6. Use a cookie cutter or a glass to cut out circles of dough slightly larger than your mini tart pan.
  7. Gently press the dough circles into the mini tart pan, making sure to cover the bottoms and sides.
  8. Prick the bottom of each tart shell with a fork a few times to prevent them from puffing up too much while baking.
  9. Bake the tart shells for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. Let them cool completely before filling.
To Prepare the Fruit Chaat Filling:
  1. In a medium bowl, combine cubed apple, banana, corn, chickpeas, tomato and potato.
  2. Drizzle lemon juice over it and season with red chili flakes, chaat masala and black salt.
  3. Mix well and taste, adjusting seasonings as needed.
To Assemble the Fruity Tart Chaat:
  1. Once the tart shells are cool, spoon the prepared fruit chaat filling into each shell.
  2. Top with green chutney and sweet chutney.
  3. Garnish generously with sev and fresh coriander leaves.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Some Useful Tips to Prepare Fruity Tart Chaat:

  • You can use store-bought mini tart shells for a quicker option.
  • If the fruit mixture releases a lot of juices, let it sit for a few minutes before filling the tarts, as a soggy crust is not ideal.
  • Feel free to experiment with different fruits based on your preference and seasonality. You can add pineapple or peach for a richer flavor.
  • For a touch of sweetness, drizzle the assembled tarts with a little honey before garnishing.
  • Leftover fruit chaat filling can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a day. However, it’s best enjoyed fresh for optimal texture.

Serving Suggestions:

  • This Fruity Tart Chaat recipe is full of unique fusion of sweet and savory flavors, making it a delightful party starter or a refreshing afternoon snack.
