Quick Tooti Frooiti Recipe Easy Without Artificial Colors, Sugar| Tutti Frooti With Beetroot



Natural colored tooti frooti?

All that glitters is not gold. But these crimson sparkles are a gold equivalent, for these use no artificial color to wear this colorful spectacle. Yes, I am talking about these colorful tutty fruity bits - from candied papaya, beet, and carrot. This kid-friendly recipe deserves attention, for it uses no artificial colors or white sugar. My one-and-a-half-year-old niece (Paro) loves these candied papaya bits like anything. To Paro, this is cherry. She will often come to me and ask for "cherry." The beautiful sparkling tutti-fruity works best for desserts, but when you want to choose healthy ingredients for baking cookies or cakes, these should be your first choice. I have not yet used these for any bakes thus far, but shall try out tutti fruity cookies soon.

I have followed one pot one shot technique to create this tooti frooti magic. So I call it naturally colored tooti frooti.

I have shared a new method in the video below


How to make tutty fruity at home: An Instant Recipe for Beginners

Put the chopped fruits in a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker.
Add jaggery powder or raw cane sugar on top, ensuring it doesn't touch the bottom.
Add  water along the sides.
Close the cooker lid and heat on high for 15 whistles.
Let the candied fruit sit in the cooker for 2 hours.
Strain them and put them on a kitchen towel or tissue paper.
Let them sun dry for a day or two. Your instant tutty fruity is done. It's shining beautifully here in Delhi, so my tutty fruity got dried in 2 days.
No color, no added sugar - Use these sparkling beauties in cookies to make tutty fruity cookies or fruit cakes.
Try out this kid-friendly recipe and pour your love onto your little ones.
I have used these in my tutti fruity cookie recipe - baking barley digestives with these tiny bits. I loved these, though these lose slight color upon baking. But I feel these tutti fruity bits still make a healthier, better option to the market junk, which are loaded with sugar and use artificial color. Trust you me, artificial colors are touted to cause cancer.

    1. I think these should stay good for a pretty good time - at least for 6 months or even longer. Better to keep tutti fruity in the refrigerator to increase its shelf life. More so, with the summer season knocking on our doors.

Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
