Belongs to Citrus Family, Like the Lemons....but quite expensive!!! Probably because, it's a store house of several nutrients and health benefits!!! Ideal to be a neivedhyam too!
We all know, dry, salted narthangai is being used in most of the families during nausea, vomitting and fever.
It is a good source of Vitamin C, boosts Immunity.
Promotes digestion, Good for Gut Health.
Prevents Cancer, Lowers Blood pressure

Narthangai - 1, sliced and juice extracted
Rice - 1 cup, cooked and let to cool down
Salt to taste

To season
Cooking oil - 2-3 tsps
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Split urad dhal - 1 tsp
Channa dhal - 1 tsp
Chopped green chillies - 2-3
Curry leaves - a few
Raw peanuts - 1/8 cup 

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Lunch
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time : 30 - 40 mts

Serves 3

Juice extracted from Narthampazham

Cooked rice cooling down

Heat a pan, add oil, add hing and turmeric powders, mustard seeds, urad and channa dhal

Keep on slow fire, and before the dhals turn golden, add peanuts too, all these will get perfect roasting

Now add curry leaves and green chillies. Red chillies are optional, but green chillies go well with the aroma and taste of the Citrons

Add the seasonings to the rice

Salt to taste

Add the Narthampazha juice as per taste. For 1 cup rice, I had to add 3 tbsps juice, it isn't so sour like lemon juice, very subtle in taste

Mix well

With some Sundal and some Vadams, isn't it a perfect meal!??
