Spicy fruit salad in coconut sauce (Konkani style sasama )

This is sweet and spicy dish so I cant categorise either in savoury or dessert. This is again served during festival meals and wedding. This can be prepared with variety of fruits. Most commonly used is pineapple. I have used mango, red grapes and bananas. But this can be prepared with just one kind of fruit or combination of these fruits.

1 cup raw fruits chunked (just a variety or mixed fruits)
3 tbsp shredded coconut
a pinch of whole mustard seeds
2 dry red chillies
1 tsp tamarind juice
1 tbsp jaggery or sugar or sweetener
a pinch of salt

Take all the chunked fruits into a mixing bowl. Now grind the rest of the ingredients with 3-4 tbsp water in a blender. Add this ground mixture to the fruits and serve. This can be chilled. This tastes very flavourful the next day as these fruits marinate in the sauce. This can be served immediately also.
