Morning breakfast is called phalāharam which means, the eating of fruit, in saMskŕtam.
On his travels, my son learned a way of eating watermelon which he taught me.
People of pūrvāşāđa nakşatram do well to eat watery fruit.
Cut your watermelon in half. I like the small dark green ones. Take a spoon to scrape and roughly mash up the water melon pulp. Add a dash of salt. That’s it. It’s yummy. Eat with same spoon.
Today I experimented by adding a few mint leaves and the juice of half a lemon. It’s also good. But I prefer the pure taste better.
