Step 1: Take the pomegranate and roll it on the kitchen slab just like your mom uses the rolling pin while making chapattis for you.
Easy and Quick Method of Deseeding a Pomegranate:
Step 2: Once you have rolled it for about say, a 20-30 seconds or so, slice the pomegranate into half, horizontally.
Step 3: Take a big bowl and start hammering the pomegranate in a way that all the seeds fall into the bowl. Be gentle and use a heavy spoon/spatula to do the same. Keep at it, once the first few kernels drop out, you'll be able to get all of them out in a jiffy!
Step 4: Eat. You're done. That's it.
Don't thank us yet, tell the world. Be proud. You now know the secret to a pomegranate's deseeding.
