Summer special kummatikka salad

Watermelon is abundantly available in Kerala during the summer season. Though the fruit contains huge amount of water in it, we still love to enjoy it juiced and chilled. The fruit, also known as kummatikka in many parts around the state, is delicious and helps to overcome dehydration during summer. A Kerala style watermelon salad is the perfect starter for a lunch date as it helps refresh your body. Try out this special watermelon salad which has loads of flavours from tomatoes, lemon and crushed pepper corns.

30 gm grated coconut

5 coconut slivers
