ABOUT Watermelon rind cake RECIPE

I tried a cake with the watermelon rind. This is absolutely sugar free cake and a boon for weight watchers and diabetic people. This is a healthy cake as it is sugarless. I have used jaggery instead of sugar and it is made with semolina/rava. I have used the puree of the rind and the puree of the red flesh too. Even kids too love this cake..
