Naranga Curry | Lemon Curry - Vishu Special Recipes

Wishing All Sankeerthanam readers Happy And Prosperous Vishu.
For this Vishu I am sharing an easy and delicious, sweet and Tangy Naranga curry recipe. This is almost similar to Lemon pickle but has some gravy in it. Adjust sweetness according to your taste. Use molasses if you don't have jaggeri.

Naranga Curry/Sweet And Tangy Lemon Curry

  • 1 cup chopped lemon
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup tamarind water
  • 1 cup water
  • asafoetida, a pinch
  • 1/4 tsp fenugreek powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tbs jaggeri
  • salt, as needed
  • 2 dry red chilli
  • curry leaves, few
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

 Heat sesame oil in a pan. Add chopped lemon  and cook till lemon pieces get soft. Add chilli powder,
turmeric powder, fenugreek powder,  asafoetida and tamarind water, keep stirring. Add  water combine well and cook covered. When it boils add jaggeri powder and mix well. Cook few more minutes till gravy thickens. Turn off the heat. Heat oil in another pan, splutter mustard seeds, curry leaves and red chillies. Pour this into lemon curry . Serve with rice.
