Chibda Harshallein / Muskmelon Harshallein is a Konkani delicacy which is enjoyed during the summer months when Musk melon is in plenty. Though fruits are best eaten as is, this is one preparation I just cannot resist. You can serve it as a dessert or for for brunch as well.
- 1 medium sized musk melon
- Coconut milk extracted from half a coconut
- Jaggery as per requirement
- Cardamom powder
- A pinch of kesar/saffron
- Poha/ flattened rice
Scoop and chop the musk melon fine. Add the coconut milk, jaggery, kesar and Cardamom powder and mix well. Refrigerate for an hour or more till it is chilled. Serve with poha.
Note: poha should not be added beforehand as it turns soggy. It is dropped into the harshallein in small quantities and eaten immediately.
