Chatpata Pomegranate





This is a very simply chatapata snack. I just love to eat this anytime.
When we were kids, my cousins and myself we always loved to eat pomegranate this way.

Sending this to AFAM - Pomegranate, hosted by SRA from 'when my soup came alive'

Pomegranate
Salt to taste
Rasam Powder ( I feel that it tastes best when we add rasam powder rather than chilli powder ) - as per req

Mix well. Eat it rightaway, otherwise it will become watery bcos of the salt. It will not be good to eat.

Note : The same method you can have it for Guava , Tomato, Cucumber etc.,
Here is one more recipe of pomegranate salad
