narthangai-sadam-1

Very recently I have started liking Narthangai/ citron. When in-laws came they got few narthangais and I made pachadi. Now again when I got 3 big narthangais through my Karaikudi mami, I made pachadi with 2 and made narthangai sadam with one fruit’s juice. And this is the first time I am making narthangai sadam. Being a mixed rice variety lover, I loved it so so much. Its same as lemon rice. Very easy to make but very flavorful and tasty. If you in case get a chance to lay hands over these fruits, do try rice with it. Though the recipe is too simple, I still wanted to blog this :)

Notes

    • Do not squeeze citron too much as it will give bitterness.
    • You can use orange squeezer to squeeze. Also do not press too hard.

Serve it with your favorite vegetable side dish and some fried vadams. I can it as such ;)
