Watermelon Rose Cooler

It is hot in Mumbai. Watermelon isn’t my favorite but my brother loves it. Watermelon rose cooler is a light drink with watermelon, rose syrup and sweet basil seeds, aka sabja

Collect it:

• 4 cups chopped deseeded

watermelon (1 cup = 250ml)

• 4 to 5 tablespoon rose syrup or add as required

• 1 teaspoon sabja seeds (sweet basil seeds) soaked in ½ cup water

• 1 to 2 teaspoon rose water (optional)

• a few ice cubes or chilled water (optional)

Make it:

Soak sabja seeds in cup water for 20 to 30 minutes. Strain and set aside.

Blend chopped deseeded water melon in a blender.

Add rose syrup and rose water (optional). Blend till smooth. You could add some ice cubes while blending. You can also thin the cooler a bit by adding some chilled water.

Pour the watermelon rose cooler in glasses. Top with some sabja seeds.

Serve watermelon rose cooler as soon as possible.
