I am a big big fan of Narthangai(Citron fruits in English).Narthangai has amazing health benefits.My MIL used to say Narthangai helps to cure 108 diseases.I am not sure how far it is true.But i know its very helpful for pitha troubles & indigestion which i have experienced it.Before marriage i used to get narthangai pickle from my Aachi in Tirunelveli.I can have a plateful of rice with it.I was thinking that pickle alone can be made with narthangai.But after marriage,when i tasted Narthangai pachadi from my MIL’s hands,i loved it more than pickle.Recently we had a trip to Kumbakonam.Sendhil’s maami gave us a bag full of citron fruits/Narthangai from their backyard.We prepared pachadi with almost 3/4th of the quantity and made this rice with the remaining.It tastes very similar to lemon rice.Sendhil love this a lot.Its one of the yummiest Narthangai recipes.Today i made this rice for his lunch box. and now it has become my favourite too.You can serve this yummy rice variety with fryums,vadam & pickle.I know all your eyes goes to those colorful fryums, right ?? .I bought them in a small shop in Lee bazaar,Salem just by seeing its different shapes & color.Ok,Lets see how to make this flavourful,yummy narthangai sadam.Here is a picture of narthangai/citron fruit for your reference.
Serve this yummy rice with fryums,vadam & pickle.I know your eyes goes to those colorful fryums right .
