Watermelon Rind Mulakushyam

Watermelon rind is watermelon skin. Everytime you make juice or salad with watermelon you throw away the skin. The other day I was talking to my mother and she said that after making watermelon juice, when she was going to bin the skin/ rind her helper asked her doesnt she use the skin to make kootu with it,my mother made it and said it tasted great . That’s what made me try dishes with it. Watermelon rind has many nutritions value. Found from google that it has high content of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, potassium, Vitamin B6 and zinc. It is loaded with citrulline, chlorophyll, amino acids, lycopene, phenolic compounds and flavonoids.So here’s my version of watermelon rind mulakushyam,the easiest and simplest dish but with lot of nutrition .

Green whole moongdal — 1/2 cup
Turmeric — 1/2 teaspoon
