A Summer Recipe : Watermelon Granita

Rain started last weekend but not the way we want… We still feel the summer.. Our juices, milkshakes, ice cream and summer recipes intakes are increasing day by day due to heat and humidity…

I love to search new recipes on the web and try in our kitchen. While browsing few recipes, I got this today’s recipe from here.. It is non other than Watermelon Granita… If you know about Mumbai Chaupati and Beaches, you all aware of spoon gola.. The Ice with varieties of juices and flavors.. This watermelon granita is kind of watermelon juice or you can say freeze watermelon lemonade..

I love the texture of this granita, it always reminds my school days and summer vacation. We used to eat lots of ice gola in summer.

We can also try muskmelon, orange, grapes, sweet lime or even strawberry granita.. Watermelon itself has lots of water so we don’t need to add extra water just lemon and sugar is more enough to make this granita. For strawberry granita, we need to add little water..
