  • ¾ cup Mint Leaf
  • ¼ cup Lemon juice
  • ½ tbsp Sugar
  • 1.5 tsp Amchur powder
  • 1 tbsp Cumin seed (roasted)
  • 2 tsp Black salt
  • Salt as needed
  • 3 cup Water
  • Cumin powder (roasted) for sprinkling


  • In a blender jar first, take all the ingredients except water and cumin seed powder.
  • Make a fine paste, if needed add little amount of water.
  • Strain the paste into a bowl.
  • Pour water and give a nice stir.
  • Now transfer this mixture into a shallow container (freezer-friendly) and keep in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until mixture starts to be icy on the edges.
  • Using a fork, scrape ice crystals from the edges, stir the mixture and break all the icy chunks. Return to the freezer.
  • Repeat every half hour for about 3-4 hours.
  • Granita is ready when it is no longer liquid and looks like a big pile of crystals.
  • Just spoon into serving glasses or bowl, sprinkle some roasted cumin powder if you'd like and serve immediately !


I have used only mint leaves. Some coriander leaves can be used in a 1:1 ratio.
