CWF-WF/WV-TOMATO – Tomato Granita

I am a Tomato Lover. I use them in as many dishes as I can. I use them in gravies,pickles,juice and salads and what not?
As I was already breaking my head on how to prepare a new dish for the event ,It occurred to me that if i can drink Tomato juice then why not try a granita with it? As summer is approaching It would really make a good refreshing dessert. I was quiet skeptical yet I grabbed those ripe tomatoes out of the fridge and in matter of minutes.. Walla!! my granita was ready .


1/2 cup water
1/4 cup Sugar
2 small bright red tomatoes (Diced)
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1 pea size ginger
Mint Leaves 2 to 3
How I made it?
1. Boil water and sugar together till syrupy
2. Add ginger piece,Mint leaves ,tomato pieces and cover with a lid(In this way tomatoes get cooked in the steam).Let it cool.
3. Remove the ginger piece and mint leaves after giving a good squeeze
4. Grind into a puree and then add lemon juice
5. Pour the mixture on a baking pan and keep it in freezer
6.Scrape the mixture every 20 minutes with a fork .
7. Do it at least 3 to 4 times to get a nice ice shaving texture.
Serve with few mint leaves and Orange or Lemon Zest.

1. Serve the Granita’s in ice cold glasses so that they dont melt fast.
2.Some people like to add Liquor like Rum,wine etc . ( If you prefer you can add at the 4Th step )
