Naranga Curry

Naranga curry is a pickle that is usually served  in a traditional Kerala sadya during Onam. It is made using curry naranga / vadukapuli naranga that looks like a large lemon but is comparatively very sour and juicy. This pickle tastes best when fresh and will not keep for more than 2 - 3 weeks in a refrigerator.

Ingredients :-
  • Karinaran ga / vadukapuli  - 1 small, cubed
  • Green chillies - 4 - 5 , sliced to rounds
  • Garlic - 10 - 15, small cloves
  • Curry leaves - 2 sprigs
  • Chilly powder - 4 - 5 tsp
  • Fenugreek powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Hing / asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - To taste
  • Gingelly oil (nallenna) - 1.5 tbsp
Preparation Method :-

Heat gingelly oil in a pan and splutter mustards. Add the garlic cloves and saute until they turn light brown. Now add the cubed lemon pieces, green chillies and curry leaves. Give it a stir and add around 1 cup water. Bring it to a boil and add the chilly powder, fenugreek powder, salt and hing. Stir well and cook for a few more minutes. Switch off when the gravy thickens. Cool down and store in a bottle. You can use it right away but remember to use a dry spoon while serving. It will keep for 2 - 3 weeks in a refrigerator.
