1 cup ripe Grapes or Kiwi (Optional)
3 teaspoons Sugar
3 teaspoons Lime
Sri Lankan Tropical Fruit Salad Recipe

Cooking Method

Wash and peel the Mangoes and cut into small 1 inch cubes and put into the large bowl. Wash and peel the Papaya, cut into equal two pieces from the center, remove the seeds and then cut the Papaya into small 1 inch cubes. Put the Papaya cubes into the large bowl. If using fresh Pineapple, remove/peel the skin of the Pineapple and cut into similar 1 inch cubes and put into the large bowl. If using Grapes, wash and slice them half. If using Kiwi, wash and peel the skin and cut them into small cubes and add to the bowl.

Now add the Sugar and Lime. Mix all the ingredients well with a long spoon. Cover the top of the bowl and let it cool in a refrigerator.

Note: Sometimes banana or plantains are also used. However, they do tend to discolour quickly. So if you want to keep the fruit salad refrigerated for some time, bananas or plantains are not recommended. You can also add 1/2 cup Raisins if desired.
