I love chakotra/pomelo , & I got introduced to this chakotra fruit by my nani (grandma). At her home, she has this chakotra tree and the season I visit my nani home is the season when chakotra starts to ripen on trees after waiting patiently for a year.

Before I used to eat this fruit by just peeling of the skin and then by hand but later my bestie “Kashika” introduced me to this new way of eating this delicious citrus fruit.

She made an extremely delicious salad of this fruit and that enhance the taste of this fruit to the power of 4.

One special ingredient that she added which I loved the most about this is green chilli. What are you insane? You are adding chilli in a citrusy fruit?? Yes, I know guys my first thoughts before tasting it was same. But trust me it turns out so good, that I’ve never skipped this ingredient again before having chakotra/pomelo.

Let’s have a look at how on how to prepare this salad.
