Summer in Chennai is not a season we look forward to. Weather here, especially during the summer solstice, is very hot. What makes it all the worse is that it is very sultry since we are located on a sea coast. Having said that, we have our own ways to deal with this weather. Evening walks on the beach is a respite. Once the sea breeze sets in, It is very pleasant to walk on the beach. What we need to do the most during these hot months is to keep ourselves hydrated. Be it in the form of warm or juices or juicy fruits, we need to be away from spicy food and lean towards more liquids and fruits. And summer comes with its own share of pros as well. It is in this season we see a lot of melons and mangoes. So here is a way of enjoying these lovely summer fruits on a stick.

SUMMER FRUITS ON A STICK

I love fruits. So I do not mind if My hands become messy while eating fruit. But then when we invite people over or when in a gathering, most people will have these fruits if it is presented in a way where they can enjoy it in a non-messy manner. Eighter we tend to offer the fruits as cut fruits or in a fruit salad or we offer them as juices. If we have the time and energy and patience to present the fruits in an innovative manner, then I am sure most guests will enjoy the fresh summer fruits on a stick.

FRUITS THAT CAN BE USED ON A STICK

I found the fruits like watermelon, musk melon, papaya and mango as the best option for the summer fruits on a stick. We can always make use of firm banana, pineapple and apple to or a combination of all these fruits.

The theme for this week of Foodie Monday Bloghop is Get in shape. This theme is suggested by Kalyani who blogs at sizzling tastebuds. She emphasises more on non-refined ingredients in her blog. Check out her blog for the healthy bakes and some lovely recipes from Karnataka. Kalyani wanted us to prepare a dish with the final product to be in some geometric form. First I thought on the lines of Idli, dosai, Kaju katli, burfi etc. But then the thought of cooking in the kitchen at this temperature made me rethink again. Then finally arrived on this idea of serving these fruit cubes on a stick.

Such a good way to serve fruits to guests and its a fun idea for kids too. I can imagine how humidity must be affecting you during the hot season. We tend to experience the same in Mombasa from Dec to April.
