Vella Naranga Curry/Achar



Vella Naranga Curry/Achar

Vella Naranga Achar/lemon curry/pickle is a quick side dish  served during Sadhya. The  spiciness of this white lemon curry is from green chilly.The best chilly to use is kandari mulaku/bird eye chilly. They are small but quite spicy and imparts good flavor to this lemon pickle. These type of sadhya pickle and condiments are meant to instant recipes and that is served on the same day. So they do not have much shelf life. The lemon is first steamed or boiled to make the skin soft and bring out the lemon flavor and can be served immediately with rice.

Ingredients


Lemon- 6- 8 medium sized
Kandari muluku- 12
(or green chilly- 5 chopped)
Fenugreek powder- 1/2 tsp
Hing powder- 1/2 tsp
Ginger thinly sliced- 2 tbs
Garlic sliced- 2 tbs
Curry leaves- a few
Gingerly oil- 2 tbs
mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Sugar- 1/2 tsp
salt to taste


Steam or boil the lemon till the skin is soft. If boiling take it before the skin cracks open. Allow it to cool, wipe dry and cut into pieces. Boil one cup of water and allow to cool a bit.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add chopped ginger,curry leaves,garlic and green chilly (make small slits on each) and saute till there is a nice aroma.
Add hing powder followed by sliced lemon. Add one cup of boiled water and salt. Reduce the flame and allow to simmer and thicken.Finally add sugar and fenugreek powder and mix. Allow this to cool down and transfer to air tight jar. You can store and refrigerate for about a week.
