Today was one more such experiment. To be rather precise, i wanted a meal. And i wanted a quick one at that. And i wanted to eat fruits. I dint want anything that will put me off to sleep in a flat minute. Oh! and did i mention how horrid the weather is. I fret everytime i go into the kitchen to roll out some phulkas. So even they were a no no. And i opened the fridge to snoop around. I came up with 2 oranges, a big slice of watermelon and some herbs. I set to work immediately. I did what came to my mind. And i must say, it was mighty pleasing.

Cook Time: Nil
Watermelon 1 c cut into bite sized pieces
Orange 2 small ones pith and seeds removed

In a bowl, combine the orange chunks along with watermelon, sugar and honey.Toss once and set aside.
Now, in a blender, blend orange juice, mint leaves and basil leaves to a puree. The puree need not be smooth. This step is to infuse flavors in to the fruit. So its ok if the leaves arent finely ground.
Now,add this blended puree to the fruit and toss well.
