Passion fruit is a nutritious fruit with sweet & tangy taste. Other than using in juice making, it also has multiple uses in culinary. It works great in Passion fruit stew/ saaru, Passion fruit Gojju/ menaskai, Baking and more! Check for my recipes of Passion fruit juice, passion fruit lassi/ flavoured yogurt and passion fruit guava cupcake here.
When I am talking about sasive, it is tasty like any other sasive. It resembles taste that of ripe mango sasive to some extent with slight sweet & tangy taste. Try this recipe yourself and enjoy your lunch with it. We have harvested a lot of them last season and harvesting this season at present! So it is very special for me. As kids we used to enjoy these fruits with added sugar. My tip to eat them by cutting into halves add ¼ tsp sugar, mix and eat it with a spoon.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 3
Passion fruit – 2
Grated fresh coconut – ¼ cup
Salt - to taste
Jaggery – 1-2 tbsp, as per taste
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Red chilli – 1
Optional seasoning:
Oil – 1 tsp
Dry red chilli – 1

  • Cut passion fruit into halves. Scoop out the pulp into a bowl.
  • Mix salt and jaggery to the passion fruit pulp. Keep aside by covering the bowl.
  • Fry 1 dry red chilli with few drops of oil. Care should be taken to avoid burning.
  • Grind coconut, fried chilli & mustard seeds to smooth paste using a mixer.
  • Mix this ground paste to the passion fruit pulp.
  • The seasoning is optional here. If you like it, fry a minced dry red chilli in oil and add to the sasive.
  • Serve fresh with rice. Refrigerate the left over sasive and shelf life is ½ day.
