Mukkani Fruit Salad

Mukkani salad is a combination three divine fruits with the base of custard sauce. A perfect bowl of salad after a meal, I have Used Banana, Jackfruit and Mango in this salad, which are religiously called as Mukkani in Tamil.

In this post I’m going to share about Mukkani Fruit Salad a twist with regular custard salad recipe. All the three Fruits are blend and combined together without dominating their flavours, believe me I didn’t feel the dominant taste of any fruits which I used in this recipe. Usually Mukkanis are strong in flavour and taste, they all blend with their flavour and tasted like a divine salad. I realised , why our ancestors call these Mukkani as a Goddess fruits, Try this heavenly salad before the season ends. Well the recipe is very easy by chopping the fruits and mixing with custard mix, the one step to give a look is to cook the custard mix in a proper way.

I always had a thought of how these strong flavoured fruits will taste all together and this time I got a chance to experiment my self with this wonderful combination. We Enjoyed this fruit salad as a dessert, For the complete recipe scroll down and check.
