Paloudeh talebi are rockmelon slushies sold by street vendors and made in homes throughout summer in Iran; paloudeh is a variation of the word faloodeh, Persia’s famous rose water, lime and noodle granita. These Persian rockmelon slushies can be simply fresh rockmelon chunks blitzed up with ice and a little sugar or they can be flavoured with honey, rose or orange blossom water, and/or mint. It’s important to choose a really ripe rockmelon, look for one that is heavy for its size and aromatic; if it’s ripe enough, you may not need to add any sugar. I use the wonderfully aromatic orange blossom water from Saffron & More.
