the temperature in Dubai is very high now and the summer has in full swing, the hot weather calls for some refreshing drink,So i decided to make a very very simple water melon drink which is very popular and common in my place. We call this drink “vathakka vellam”(vathakka or bathakka means water melon) nothing a very simple two ingredient summer cooler.water melon is a perfect summer fruit. juicy and highlynutritious.
this is very common and simple watermelon prepared with two ingredients, water melon and sugar,chilled water melon mashed with sugar.I am always using fresh well ripe juicy water melon for making this drink so I never add water.If you want you can add 1/2 cup chilled water while mashing watermelon. don’t forget to use gloves while mashing water melon or use a potato masher.
always use well ripe,sweet and juicy melon.if you feel that you need more juice you can add 1/2 cup chilled water.but adjust sugar.so here is the very very simple two ingredient water melon cooler.
