Watermelon rind chutney

I haven’t heard about this chutney until one of my friends told me about it. She asked me to try and post it on my blog. I made slight change by replacing the channa dhal with melon seeds. It is very healthy and easy to make too. Instead of throwing the white portion of the watermelon, we can make it to a healthy recipe. Thank you Gayathri for the wonderful recipe.


Watermelon rind – From half fruit

Urad dhal – 1 tsp

Melon seeds – 2 tsp

Coconut bits – 2 tbsp

Curry leaves – few

Red chillies – 2

Tamarind – small piece

Jaggery – few


Oil – 3 tsp

For seasoning

Oil – 1 tsp

Mustard – 1 tsp

Urad dhal – 1 tsp

  • In a kadai add oil and saute urad dhal and melon seeds. Saute until they turn golden brown in colour.
  • Then add coconut, curry leaves, red chillies, tamarind and saute well.
  • Transfer it to the mixie jar and add jaggery, salt.
