Fruit Salad with Milk and Sooji/Farina Dressing

Print  Friendly and PDF
 How is it going everyone? Sorry I had to abandon the second run abruptly. Blame it on 3 things --
  • The computer that had the photos got corrupted with some Malware. Only a few pictures were recovered(Booohoooo!!!)
  • The historic snowfall last week that knocked power in my area (Well, I have pictures to prove)
  • My chaotic life (You only have to take my word for it)
Fruit Salad that should have been a part of the "Soup and Salads" theme-

While I got the Power back, I feel so bad for so many of the folks who still hasn't - especially for folks who have small kids and for older people.A few pictures of the snowfall. It was raining snow! Big fat flakes that furiously fell all over the place-

Recap of what I cooked for the first-run of BM9(Traditional South-Indian Farmer's Fare):
Recap of what I made for the second-run of BM9(Salad and Soup):
Sending this and all of the above soups/salad recipes along with Red Lentil Soup to Srivall's Salad and Soup Mela @ Cooking for all Seasons.
  • 1 Gala Apple
  • 1 Bosc Pear
  • 2 Medium Banana
  • 2 Cups Red Table Grapes
  • 1-1/2 Cups Reduced Fat Milk
  • 2-3 Tbsp Sooji
  • 2-3 Tbsp Sugar or more/less
  • Boil the milk in the saucepan.
  • While the milk is still hot, add the Sooji/Farina, sugar and reduce the flame to low.
  • Switch off the stove a couple of minutes later. The milk-sooji mixture will start thickening once the sooji is cooked.
  • Pour it into a cup and set it aside.
  • Halve the grapes. Chop the other fruits into small chunks.
  • Move the fruit chunks into a wide bowl. Pour the milk-sooji mixture over the fruit chunks.
  • Mix it up and let it chill for a few minutes.
  • Transfer the fruit salad into small serving bowls.

Makes 5-6 Servings.
