Here we are to tell you that you can make a lip-smacking and immunity-boosting pickle as well, right at home with very little effort and few ingredients. One of the main ingredients which you’ll be needing is the discarded parts of a watermelon or the watermelon pith.

So, if you have been wondering and curious about the recipe, give a read below, here it goes.


Watermelon pith pieces enough to fill a 1 liter glass jar

1.5-2 tbsp – Yellow mustard powder

2-3 tsp – Red chilli powder

1 tsp – Salt

1 tsp – Turmeric powder


*Peel of the watermelon and cut the white pith into thin strips.

*On the other side, boil one liter of water and let it cool down for some time.

*Mix all the ingredients together in a glass jar and pour the boiled water to it.
