Kallangadi Sippe(Watermelon Rind) Sasive

1.5 cups grated Watermelon Rind / Kallangadi sippe
1/2 - 3/4 cup grated Coconut
1.5 tsp Mustard seeds (3/4 grinding + 3/4 for seasoning)
Small piece of Ginger
1 - 2 Green Chillies
4 - 5 Coriander leaves
3/4 cup Buttermilk / Yogurt / Curd
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
Pinch of Asafetida powder
4 - 5 Curry leaves
1 tsp Oil


Grate the watermelon rind as shown in the picture below. Chop the coriander leaves into small pieces.

Put grated coconut, green chillies and 3/4 tsp mustard seeds in a mixer. Add enough water and grind it to smooth paste. (If it is frozen coconut, add hot water while grinding.) Add ginger and grind them together for about 2 mins.

Put grated watermelon rind, coriander leaves, salt in a vessel and mix them well. Add ground coconut, buttermilk and mix well. (If it is yogurt/curd, put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to sasive.)

Put oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds in a pan and heat. Once it starts spluttering, add asafetida powder, curry leaves and keep it for few seconds and then add it to sasive. Mix well before serving. It goes well along with rice.

Is this sippe with the green portion or do you peel the green sippe like we peel for potatoes and have only the rind?

As described and shown in the picture its only the rind part. The outermost layer(the green portion) should be removed.
