WaterMelon Halwa is an amazing recipe that would definitely delight your tastebuds.  Summer is here and watermelons are in the market. This summer tries out a different recipe from watermelon, other than juicing.
The white portion of the melon is nutritious but lacks taste so we often discard it. But this #halva recipe is extremely easy & uses the rind to make a mouth-watering halwa in no time. It’s colour and taste both will blow your mind.

  1. Following kunal kapoor even I tried this recipe. But one variation is that I grated the white rind instead of grinding. I also tried making tutti frutti using the white rind. Both recipes came out well
