    I never thought watermelon chutney would be so yummy! The green outer part of the watermelon, which we hold and eat around is a Rind. Generally, we throw away this part after eating. I decided to try chutney with that part and gave it a shot, which turned out tasty, similar to cuccumber or mexican squash chutney. Give it a try and nobody would guess, u made it from the rind of watermelon.

    Ingredients:

    tender watermelon rind – 1/4
    green chillies – 4
    cumin – 3/4 tsp
    garlic cloves – 4
    tamarind paste – 1 tsp
    salt – 1 tsp (as per taste)
    for tadka:
    oil – 3 tsp
    red chillie – 1/2
    chana dal – 1 tsp
    urad dal – 1 tsp
    garlic clove - 1
    turmeric – pinch
    curry leaves – 1 sprig
    cilantro/coriander - 6 sprigs.

    Method:

    Take the watermelon rind, wash and cut into small pieces. If u think the rind is hard, just peel a little bit and cut into pieces. Take a non-stick pan, add watemelon rind pieces, half-cut green chillies, 1-2 tsp of oil, mix and cook them until soft and allow them to cool.

    In a mixer, add garlic cloves, cumin, salt, tamarind paste, green chillies, and make a fine paste. Add rind pieces, little water, chopped cilantro and make a fine paste. Keep adding little by little water until u get a fine paste.

    Keep a pan for tadka, add all ingredients and let them splutter and transfer onto the chutney. Mix it and enjoy it with hot steamed rice or dosa.
