Now coming back with the main topic. So sterday as we were browsing TV channels, suddenly came upon one recipe named 'WATERMELON JELLY'. After cing that my hubby was soo interested in trying that v prepared sterday itself. Believe me guys, that was soo quick on time with less ingredients. And finally the taste was just too yummy with a very soft texture and looks elegant. Kids would just love as it has the bright colour of watermelon. Also I amgonna try the same procedure with pineapple. So what are u waiting for? Just try this to impress ur loving kiddos :)
