Somewhat sweet, somewhat sour, somewhat salty. These refreshing dragonfruit popsicles will tickle your tastebuds and will pleasantly surprise you.
You can think of these popsicles as a cleaner version of kaala-khatta (or gola khatta), from back home. Kaala khatta is a popular form of ice cream which is sold at street stalls. They’re sweet and sour, and leave you with a refreshing kick. Unlike the gola khatta, these dragon fruit- watermelon popsicles neither contain any added sugar, nor any chemicals. They are made using 4 simple ingredients.
- Dragon fruit: These aren’t easily available in the supermarkets here. But you can sometimes find them at the exotic fruits section in Edeka or Rewe. Otherwise you can order it online from jjgt.de , where I got mine from.
- Watermelon: Get the red (not yellow) watermelon for this recipe.
- Black salt: available at Indian grocery stores.
