Some weekends just pass you by; but this sunday was memorable. Aparna is in Mumbai for a vacation so Harini and I decided to meet her. It was great to finally see someone I've talked food and books to for so long. And it was really great to meet her lovely daughter and food-tester Akshaya - she really is too sweet. I went to see another friend right after meeting them and from both of us : A Big Thank You for the cake and the really delicious Guava Cheese you got us from Goa. Between meeting friends, this was a sunday afternoon well spent.
And sunday morning, that was spent baking cookies that Aparna and Harini hopefully liked. And making watermelon sorbet, for what could be better before venturing into Bombay heat.
It's just plain watermelon. Chop it carefully so that you remove all traces of seeds; then puree two cups of watermelon pieces in a blender. Freeze for an hour then blend to a smooth semi-frozen watermelon ice. Freeze again for half an hour, blend. Freeze and blend one more time and you have the healthiest dessert on earth.
Watermelon Sorbet goes to Aquadaze, who is hosting this month's edition of Bindiya's My Favorite Things Event with the theme Frozen Desserts.
The healthy dessert is also heading over to Srivalli's Mithai Mela.
