Muskmelon salad/ Chibadcha srikarna

Musk melon (cucmis melo) is Indian gourd. One of the delicious fruit with high fiber content and  with low calorie.It is found during October to November and also found during monsoon. Its locally called chibad( in konkani). It has a musky flavour.

We saraswat's prepare different sweet on different occasion one such is " Chibadcha hashala ". this sweet is made during Balipadya day,  the fourth day during diwali festival.  Moving towards recipe her is ingredients.....

 Chibad ( Musk melon) is fully ripened when it break opens itself. Use chibad which is fully ripened.

Chibad fully ripened : 1 ...Peel it and cut into cubes of 1  inch each. 
Milk                        : 1/2 ltr..... boiled and cooled.
Jaggery                   : 1/2 cup finely grated ...( if sweet toothed you can use more).
Cardmom powder   : 1tsp.
Beaten rice              : 1 fist....(soak in a cup of cold water for 10 minutes).

Mix Milk and jaggery together. Stir well so no jaggery remians at the bottom. Now add beaten rice, cardmom powder, and cubed chibad. Chill it by keeping in fridge. Serve chilled.

 ** Using  coconut milk instead of milk makes it more tastier. I personally don't use coconut milk as it makes acidity high in me after eating. If you are using coconut milk use thin coconut milk.
