Mint Jaljeera Granita
A slightly tangy and crunchy dessert prepared by the popular and refreshing drink, Jaljeera
Easy and simple to make during summer.
Cumin seed (roasted)
Salt as needed
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.
