  • 40mins
  • Serves 4
  • Medium







Add the cut watermelon along with the seeds into a blender and puree them completely. Remove and strain the juice to remove the outer part of the seeds.
Pour the juice in a pan and bring to a boil and cook till it reduces by 50%. Once it reaches that stage remove from heat and let it cool completely.


In the meantime using hand whisk or an electric whisk beat the cream till it thickens to soft peak stage. Make sure at all times the cream is chilled.
Now in the cooled watermelon juice add in condensed milk, vanilla extract, rose water and mix it well. Fold in the cream and mix them together.


Add the pink food colour (optional) and some roasted pistachios. Mix them again and pour the ice cream mixture into a mould. Place this mould in a freezer for 24hours to completely freeze. Once ready scoop out and garnish with chopped watermelons and more of roasted pista on top.


How to pick the right Watermelon

When you pick the melon in your hands it should feel heavy for its size.

Check for any visible holes or damage. Also if the melon is too soft to press then don’t buy.

Never cut the watermelon to check the sweetness as you never know how dirty the knife is.

Tap the watermelon in the centre, a thumping hollow sound means it is ripe.

Usually a dull looking melon Is ripe rather the shiny one.


Light veins or dried web like structure or lines on the outside of a melon generally means it is a sweet melon.

Yellow spot does not mean it is bad, yellow soft occurs when the water melon sits on the ground and that part does not get sunlight.

Sometimes melons are artificially ripened and hence they are not that sweet, but this is not the case always.

If the melon is not so sweet you can add some honey on top and serve.
