Eating Pomelo while basking in the sun is one of the leisure activities that all Nepalese love to do. It is a very common scene in Nepal especially around this time of the year as it is the season for Pomelos. I had some pomelos at home so instead of eating it as it is, I decided to make a popular lip smacking tangy Nepalese pass time snack lovingly called “Bhogate Sandheko”.
Here is what you will need:
- 1 Pomelo
- 1 teaspoon of red chili powder
- 1 teaspoon salt or according to your taste
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1-2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 3 tablespoons of plain greek yoghurt or just regular yoghurt
Remove the cover and collect the inside of the pomelo into a bowl.
Add chili powder, salt, sugar and yoghurt to the pomelo.
In a small pan heat oil, fennel seeds and turmeric. Cook until the fennel seeds turn dark brown. Once done, add this oil mixture to the bowl with pomelo. Mix well and serve!
Eating pomelo like this or just in general brings back so much memories to me. It takes me right back to Nepal and the times eating pomelo by the patio or in the terrace. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do.
