Watermelon & Cucumber Raita

Its kinda hot here and we are getting hooked to fresh juices and summer fruits like watermelon, peach and strawberries, after having those sweet watermelon chunks before throwing the green part, i removed that white part of the watermelon for making out some dals with those white part..While making out our usual cucumber raita i tried adding some grated watermelon along with cucumber and the crunchy texture of this watermelon tasted very fabulous and both cucumber and watermelon works out wonder together and we loved it, enjoyed having this creamy watermelon and cucumber raita with Chettinad Mutton Biryani..Easy breezy and refreshing raita get ready within few minutes and goes awesome even with rotis..To grate the white part of the watermelon will be bit tricky but this raita will tastes super delicious;.

Watermelon & Cucumber Raita

1/2cup Grated watermelon (white part only)
1cup Cucumber (grated)
1cup Thick yogurt
Few coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt

Take the grated watermelon, grated cucumer, thick yogurt, chopped coriander leaves,thick yogurt , mix everything well and let them sit in fridge..

While serving add enough salt and serve along with pulaos or briyanis..

Great idea Priya..I too use that watermelon white part but never tried in raita..must have tasted great..looks perfect for my event..

Priya, this is such an innovative idea. I think we usually throw away the white part. Why don't you send this to Nithu's "Best out of waste" event that she announced today. I think this is a perfect match for that or at least I think so :)
