The Secret Ingredient is.............

Watermelon... :)

The white portion alone is used for making More(Butter milk) kolambu. :)

Thanks to all of you who had made their guesses. :) Most of you guessed it as white pumpkin, cucumber, green mango etc.. But then you all missed to see the little red peaks of the pieces. ;)

Preethy Srinivasan was very close by guessing as a variety of melon(fruit). Congrats you were right. :)

So lets not waste the white portions of the melon, lets use it to make more kolambu from now on. ;)
