Cold Spiced Grapes

Sharing is caring!

A simple and delicious Bangladeshi recipe for spicy grapes.

I don’t know about you but the idea of spicy grapes is new to me. I learned this simple recipe at a local Bangladeshi run curry house and have made it several times since then.

The spicy grapes can be eaten fresh or frozen. I love both options and here I will show you how to prepare them.

About this recipe

These spicy grapes are great as a snack, starter or even dessert. I usually serve them as a snack. The best way to prepare them is to taste, adding as much chili powder, salt, lime juice and coriander (cilantro) as you like.

I prefer mine extra spicy but the sweet, savoury, sour and spicy flavours are down to you. 

How are the grapes eaten?

You could just mix all the ingredients and enjoy the grapes immediately.

Another popular way to serve them is to freeze the grapes. To do this, mix all the ingredients together and then place them in the freezer for 2 hours or overnight.

You can freeze the grapes in an air-tight container for up to 3 months.

Hi Dan, I’m Novera, and my home country is Bangladesh. I liked your grape recipe and surely suits in our Bangladeshi palates. However, this grape recipe is surely Not a traditional recipe; surely Not with grapes, Maldon salt, and lemon. I’ll tell you why; the ingredients are certainly Not Bangladeshi local, these are foreign items, lemon and Maldon salt—never seen them in Bangladesh and never seen anyone made it in BD. This dish can not be BD traditional. Lets call it Bangladesh American Fusion. If you really want the Bangladeshi traditional fruit dish then here it is. The most Bangladeshi Traditional one is with ripe yellow or raw green mangos, thinly cut up length wise add few pinches of red ground pepper, Black salt (bit lobon), if the mango is too sweet then add lime juice if its too tart then add sugar. Mix it with hand. Of course people make variations but I gave you the 100% traditional recipe. Another one is Mango with dijon mustard with lime juice and black salt and pinch of sugar is a master traditional Bangladeshi recipe. Now that I’m in America, I do the first recipe with red pepper with strawberries, and kiwi sometimes. Another traditional fruit is using Guavas. I will certainly try with your grapes this time. Nice to meet you. Thank you.

Would this recipe work with Purple seeded grapes? My Husband bought so many we need to do something with them so as not to waste any.

Hi Ashley

Go for it. If it sounds good, it probably will be. :-)

Sounds good to me! Must. Make. Soon. It'll help ke not feel bad about buying up all the grapes when they go on sale, since I can't shop rationally in the summer. So much produce, so little fridge space. Thanks for a new idea!
