Small watermelon
½ no.
Ginger grated
½ tsp
Pudina / mint leaves
8 – 10 leaves
Lemon juice
2 – 3 tsp
Powdered sugar                              
2 tbsp


1.       Scoop out the flesh from the watermelon.

2.       Remove the seeds and transfer the flesh to a grinding jar.

3.       To it add grated ginger, chopped mint leaves, sugar, salt and lime juice. You can increase or decrease the sugar as per your preference and the sweetness of the melon.

4.       Grind it all together to form a liquid.

5.       Transfer the juice to a container with lid.

6.       Deep freeze it for around 5 – 6 hours.

7.       Check in between. When it starts to form into ice around the edges but still there is little liquid, scrape the ice around with a fork to form crystals.

8.       Again refreeze it for 3 – 4 hours.

9.       Just before serving remove it from the refrigerator, scratch and scrape it around with a fork.

10.   Collect the juice crystals or icicles and spoon them into a serving shot glass.

11.   Garnish with a mint leaf and serve chilled immediately. A light sprinkle of chaat masala on top enhances its taste manyfold.
