Caramelised Watermelon Bites

Caramelised Watermelon Bites

Did you know that as far as fruits go, the watermelon is one of the lowest in calories — only 46 calories per cup and that it is 92% water? This fruit, with its distinct green exterior and luscious red interior, is packed with vitamins (A, B1, B5, B6, and C), minerals (potassium and magnesium), carotenoids (beta-carotene and lycopene) and also has citrulline, an important amino acid.

While most of us scoop out the red juicy flesh and use it in salads or juices to keep us hydrated during summer, here’s an interesting recipe that is made from its rind – the part that we normally discard.



Watermelon rind – 2 cups; peeled and grated

Milk – 300 ml

Milk powder – 40 gm

Ghee – 3/4 cup

Green cardamom – 4-5 pcs; crushed

Watermelon seeds – 4-5 tbsp; roasted

Cashews – 10-15 pcs; chopped

Sugar – 1 cup


  1. Heat ghee in a pan and add the crushed cardamom
  2. Add the grated watermelon rind and mix well
  3. Cook on high flame till all the water evaporates and ghee separates from the mixture
  4. Add milk along with chopped cashews and mix well. Cook till the milk reduces and the ghee separates from the mixture
  5. Add the milk powder and mix well till the mixture thickens
  6. Add sugar and keep stirring ensuring that the mixture does not stick to the bottom of the pan
  7. Cook till the mixture thickens and the ghee separates. The colour will be golden brown by now
  8. Spoon out the mixture into silicon cupcake moulds filling till about 1/3rd
  9. Garnish with roasted watermelon seeds and let cool
  10. Freeze before demoulding
