A simple fresh dessert is now required. This is not a Sri Lankan recipe but it works after such food.

1 Make a light sugar syrup with a cup of grated palm sugar, 3 cups of water and 2 tbsp of grated fresh ginger.

2 Boil together and reduce by a third. Strain out the ginger and cool the liquid. Freeze in a shallow tray.

3 Prepare a melon by cutting it into portion sizes, dicing it to the skin and putting it in a bowl.

4 Break up the frozen ginger ice with a fork and pile over the melon. Serve immediately. Very refreshing.
