Granita Magic…

Tuesday 12 May 2009 | Posted by Kishi | Fruits

litchi I am home alone. Gudiya has already cooked a meal. (Black garbanzo beans with Rice).
Though somehow I am not pleased enough. Am restless, sleepy and a bit bored today. You know how you have some days where you don’t know the reason why you are feeling a specific way- its one of those!
Lots of fresh fruit in fridge- litchi, melon, mango, and watermelon.

20-30 pitted litchi
Lime juice, to taste
1/2 mango, peeled and sliced, optional
½ cup melon, optional
½ cup sugar syrup (equal parts water and sugar)

1. In blender blend litchi and sugar syrup
2. Taste and fine-tune sweetness by adding lime juice.
3. Empty mixture into plastic pan, cover up and put in freezer. Check after about 1 ½ – 2 hours. When concoction is beginning to freeze up, stir with fork so it doesn’t freeze rock-solid. Stir at regular intervals until mixture freezes into consistency of sorbet.
4. About 15 minutes prior to serving remove litchi granita from freezer and allow softening slightly in refrigerator or cool place. Muddle up well and serve in bowls garnished with mango and melon slices.

PS- Add vodka to make it tastier

The satisfied I will take a nap now!
