Watermelon Lemonade

Refreshing drink to enjoy without any hesitation to beat the heat, a fabulous thristy quencher too...I simply prepared this beautiful quencher using watermelon chunks,lemon juice and some basil seeds..Basil seeds when soaked in water they turns gelatinous and they are quite used in falooda and sherbet, they have many medicinal properties and quite used in Ayurveda and in Siddha medicine, a traditional tamilian medicine...We enjoyed this fabulous looking lemonade chilled, a wonderful drink to enjoy when its too hot.
