Posted in : HULI / CURRY / VEGETABLE CURRY / GOJJU / TANGY CURRY / DAL / TOVVE / VEGETABLE KOOTU / SAGU, SOUP on by : Divya Suresh

After trying out my hands on Watermelon lassi, now I’m here with one more recipe using watermelon. Watermelon curry – soup has become my most favourite curry/soup lately. I really look forward to prepare this curry more often. I got the basic idea of making this curry from one of the books of Mrs. Nita mehta.   Thanks to her for coming up with such a wonderful recipe. I have made a lot of changes in it and has adopted it according to the likes & tastes of all of us at home. We really really enjoyed it both as soup and also with white rice (like saaru/rasam). So gladly sharing the recipe of the same which I feel very essential and suitable for this hot weather, though we can equally enjoy this curry/soup during winter as well. Relish it in any way you would like to.
