Pomegranate is a berry, and is an excellent source of dietary fibre, folate and anti-oxidants. This recipe may account for one-a-day diet recommendations. I give it a personal touch by adding a pinch of cumin powder. Black salt is optional in this recipe - black salt is rock salt sourced from Himalayas. It is pungent, and strong and sulfuric to taste.
2 large Pomegranates, deseeded
2 tbsp Sugar
Pinch of cumin powder
Few drops of lemon juice
Black salt and mint leaves optional
Liquidise the pomegranate seeds and strain.
Add sugar, lemon juice and cumin powder to the liquid, and stir until the sugar dissolves.
Freeze the liquid for about 4 to 6hrs. Remove from the freezer, transfer to a blender, and crush until slushy.
Serve in dessert glasses, garnished with mint leaves. Optional: Sparingly sprinkle black salt all over.
