Grilled nectarines with maple syrup, mint and chaat masala

Comments : 1 Posted in : Drinks & Desserts on by : Ratna Tags: , , , , , , ,

August  is  such  a  bittersweet  month.  All  the  beautiful  fruits  are  ready  to  be  enjoyed,  the  veggies  are  ready  to  harvest,  children  are  still  on  summer  holidays,  days  are  long….

It  is  also  a  time  when  the  leaves  start  to  change  colour.  The  single  digit  temperatures  reminding  us  of  times  to  come.

Coming  back  to  the  present  time,  let  us  enjoy  the  lovely  fruits.  Nectarines,  plums,  peaches….  We  are  spoilt  for  choices.  Grilling  these  lovely  fruit  releases  their  flavour.  Add  a   few  more  flavours  of  your  liking  and  you  have  an  exquisite  dessert.

I  have  gone  fusion  here.  Maple  syrup  from  “Our  home  and  native  land”  and  Chaat  masala  from  India.  Believe  me  they  worked  fantastic   together.

Ready  in  no  time,  this  is  just  the  right  dessert  for  that  informal  gathering  with  friends  or  even  the  ‘high  tea’.

Recipe:  Serves  4

Ingredients:

Nectarines                                                       4,  cut  in  half  and  seeded

Maple  syrup                                                    1/2  cup

Brown  sugar                                                    2  Tbsps

Butter                                                                  2  Tbsps

Chopped  mint  leaves                                1  tsp

Chaat  masala                                                  1  tsp

Lemon  juice                                                      1  tsp

Method;

Preheat  the  grill  pan  on  the  stove.  Grill  the  nectarines  face  side  down  for  a  few  minutes,  turn  them  a  quarter  turn  and  grill  for  a  few  more  minutes.  This  way  there  will  be  criss  cross  grill  marks.  Take  care  not  to  burn  them.

In  a  microwave  safe  pan  melt  the  butter.  Put  the  grilled  nectarines,  face  side  down  on  the  melted  butter,  such  that  they  are  greased.

Turn  the  face  side  of  the  nectarines  up  and  sprinkle  the  brown  sugar  on  top.  Place  this  pan  in  the  broiler  only  to  get  the  sugar  bubbly.

Take  the  pan  out  of  the  broiler,  sprinkle  the  lemon  juice,  maple  syrup  and  chaat  masala  on  top.

Enjoy  as  is  or  with  a  scoop  of  your  favourite  ice  cream.

Inside  scoop:

The  fruit  is  done  pretty  fast  on  the  grill.  They  can  burn  if  not  careful.

    Grilled peaches and nectarines are my favourite dessert to eat during a barbecue in summer. Next time I’ll add chat masala for sure. It’s such awesome idea!
