Watermelon, an ideal fruit for Ramzan

Watermelon Pudding 


4 cups coarsely chopped, seeded watermelon 
2 tbsp cornstarch
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ vanilla extracts
2 tsp strained freshly squeezed lemon juice


Puree the watermelon in a mixer until smooth. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a measuring cup, discarding remaining solids. You should have just about 3 cups (750 ml) watermelon juice.

Ladle 2 tbsp watermelon juice into a small bowl and stir in the cornstarch, until smooth.

Pour the remaining watermelon juice into a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Add the sugar and vanilla seeds, and whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Stir the cornstarch mixture again, then whisk into the watermelon juice. Simmer, whisking occasionally, for 3 minutes, then whisk in the lemon juice.

Pour the pudding through a clean strainer and into a measuring cup, then transfer to small glass jars, glasses, or ramekins. Cover and chill until set, at least 3 hours. Before serving, garnish the watermelon puddings with whipped cream and pistachios.

Watermelon juice


Lemon juice


Cut the watermelon into pieces, separate the seeds and put it in a grinder, now add a little water, lemon juice and sugar and grind.

Then take the juice out of the grinder and filter it with a muslin cloth to separate the pulp and the syrup.

Then put ice cubes in a glass and pour the juice over it, lemons can be added to your liking to add more flavor.
