Ingredients to make Watermelon Curry

  • Watermelon – 1
  • Ghee (clarified butter) – 1 to 2 tbsp

  • cloves – 2-3
  • Green cardamom – 2
  • ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp

How to make Watermelon Curry

  1. Cut watermelon into quarters. Cube and deseed the red portion. Puree half of the cubes.
  2. In a pan heat ghee, add mustard, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves. Let mustard start to splutter.
  3. Add the ginger garlic paste and sauté for 5 seconds.
  4. Add the pureed watermelon and bring to a simmer.
  5. Add in the chilli powder, turmeric, salt. Continue to simmer for 3 to 4 mins. May add a tbsp or two of water if needed.
  6. Lastly add in the watermelon cubes, garam masala powder, stir for a minute. Add lime juice and remove from heat.
  7. Serve hot with saffron rice, coriander flavoured rice or just some plain hot rice.

My Tip:

Choose bright red, sweet watermelon for more depth, flavour and color. Do not substitute oil in place of ghee. Ghee gives the curry a richer taste.
