    Grind watermelon seeds and muskmelon seeds to a paste using a little water. Dissolve saffron in fresh cream and keep aside. Heat three tablespoons of oil in a pan, add one teaspoon of shahi jeera, four green cardamoms and four cloves. When they change colour add green chillies and onion paste and sauté for three to four minutes or till it turns golden brown.

    Add ginger-garlic paste and sauté for two minutes. Add yogurt, melon seeds paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and stir-fry till oil separates from the masala. Add half a cup of water and mix well. When water comes to a boil add mango pulp, fried potatoes and salt.

Add garam masala powder, saffron dissolved in fresh cream to the gravy and simmer for a couple of minutes. Adjust seasoning. Add freshly ground masala and lemon juice and stir.
