Indian Watermelon Curry Home
This unusual curry turns bland watermelons into a spectacular and quickly prepared original and authentic Indian curry.
You will read many curious traditional indian recipes, but this one from Camellia Panjabi 50 Great Curries of India immediately caught my fancy. A savory watermelon curry, no less.
I tried it last night and it works wonderfully - tasty, light and refreshing, and very easy to cook. See for yourself!

Half a small watermelon

Peel the watermelon and cut the flesh into bite-sized cubes.
In a mortar grind together coriander seeds, salt, turmeric and chili.
Add the crushed garlic
and a cup watermelon cubes

Mash everything to a pulp. This is very fun to do!
Fry the cumin seeds

a deep frying pan. Wait until they start to smoke
