Course: Drinks
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 2


  • 2 cups White pumpkin Poosanikai cubed
  • ½ cup Cucumber cubed
  • ¼ cup Mint and coriander leaves loosely packed
  • 1 Lemon Lime
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper powder
  • Salt – As needed


  • Since we are using everything raw in this drink, make sure to clean the ingredients firstly. So wash well.
  • After that, place pumpkin, cucumber, mint, coriander leaves along with salt in a blender.
  • Then, blend with little water and pour it over a strainer.
  • Filter furthermore with more added chilled water and squirt lemon juice from a whole lemon. I used lime here.
  • Mix well and check for salt. Finally add pepper powder and serve immediately.



  • Instead of cucumber, you can use one big variety Indian gooseberry (Amla/ nellikkai) for cooling property.
  • My parents add a carrot as well in this. Add a piece of ginger too if you like.
  • Use chilled pumpkin and cucumber so that the drink is cold too.
