Watermelon Cooler.

With summer at its mightiest, fruits and coolers are what my kids demand now. I made this simple cooler with watermelon and grapes for Nidhi.....studying Maths....for her upcoming 10th exam.

I used a melon scoop to scoop out the melons and added black grapes.......then sprinkled chaat masala.....chilled it for 20 min.

You can use different fruits like orange, green grapes, musk melon, cubed apples, cubed mangoes......what ever is there in your fruit basket....make sure you chill it before serving.

How I made this:
Water melon: 1/4 of one big melon.
Black grapes: 250 gms.
Chaat masala: 1/2 tsp.
Mint leaves: 2 chopped (optinal).

Scoop the melon with a melon scoop into a small bowl, mix in grapes and sprinkle chaat masala.
Chill for 20 min.
Serve immediately.

Perfect summer cooler for kids.

Summer Specials:
Raw Mango Sherbet.
Fruit Chaat.
