Step By Step Instructions For How To Chop Watermelon Rinds

Rinds are nothing but fleshy outer skins of fruits. Water melon has a whitish rind between the red sweet part and the outer green skin. This fleshy white portion can be used for making stir-fry, curries and side-dishes. It is less sweet than the fleshy red portion of the watermelon but has the watermelon flavor in it. These rinds have a crunchy texture and tastes similar to cucumber. You can make curries, gravies, stir-fries using these watermelon rinds. Just use these rinds like you will use snake-gourd. Read further to know how to chop these rinds for using them in preparations.
