  • Ingredients:
  • Any Melon of your choice Musk/Honey-dew- 1
  • Jaggery/Gaur - 1/2 Cup
  • 2 to 3 - Cardamom
  • 2 to 3 Cups - water


  • Method:
  • Wash and dry, Cut open the Melon and remove the seeds.
  • Using a melon baller scoop out few melon balls for garnishing when you serve.
  • With a spoon scoop out all the flesh and mash it well. ( My Mom used to squash it using her hand to a pulp)
  • In 2 to 3 cups of water or you can use more water adjust to the consistency you like!, there's not an exact measurement for this.
  • Dissolve the grated jaggery until it dissolves then filter it through a sieve. Usually, they have impurities, as this is a raw product.
  • Then mix the squash of the melon and chill it in your fridge and serve it.
  • Oops! Don't forget to add some crushed cardamom powder.
  • Enjoy!


It shouldn't become too squashed like grinding it in a mixie. But if you preferred to do so you can do it if you don't want to use your hand!
There is no exact measurement of water, If the melons are very sweet you don't need a lot of Jaggery.
Jaggery comes in round blocks or square blocks, grate or mash them up and use them as you require depending on the sweetness of the melons. Jaggery/Gaur is a sweetener used in India, it is not a processed sugar and is the raw product of cane and is a better option than sugar.
