Honeydew melon recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time: 6 Hr    |  Cook time: 0 mins    Serves: 2


Honeydew melon, chopped roughly - 2 cups

Sugar - 1/4 cup

Lemon juice - 2 tsp

Lemon zest - 2 pinches


  1. Scoop the pulp of the melon with a laddle or just cut and slice off the skin, chop the fruit roughly and grind it with lemon juice.
  2. 1-clean-and-chop
  3. Grind smoothly and pour it in a freezer safe, flat and broad box. Mix in the lemon zest. Freeze for an hour and again take it out, wipe the sides inside the box especially corners, that would have started to freeze.
  4. 2-grind-smoothly
  5. Again freeze overnight or minimum 6 hours and use a fork to scrap the frozen mixture and serve immediately.
  6. 3-freeze-and-scrap


    • You can skip both lemon and lemon zest and make it same way. It tastes great too.
    • While freezing, refrain opening the freezer door often.
    • Granita is supposed to be grainy, so make sure you scrap with fork and there should not be any lumps too. 

For serving, you can freeze the serving bowl too to avoid melting soon. Delicious!
