Wild Lemon /Hollo Nimbuvo pickle

                                              Here is yet another spicy dish / pickle made from Wild lemon or Hollo Nimbuvo as we call it ! Also called Vadukapuli naranga or Kari naranga in Malayalam and Kadarangai in Hindi .Even though its a little bitter – the pickle is so tasty that you will never find any signs of bitterness ! So here is the recipe – Pics & recipe Courtesy – my dear friend – Shobha Kumar
Ingredients :-
  1. Hollo nimbuvo – 1 
  2. Ginger chopped  – 2 to 3 tbsp
  3. Green chillies  chopped –  2 to 3 tbsp.
  4. Gingelly oil  – 50 ml 
  5. Chilli powder –  50 gms (I used kashmiri chilli powder)
  6. Hing  – 1 tsp
  7. Salt to taste

Method :-

Wash and chop the  fruit into small pieces .
Heat oil in a Kadai.
Add the  chopped ginger  and green chillies  and saute well
Add the chopped nimbuvo.and saute till the water content  evaporates   
 You can notice that it becomes mushy and colour changes to dark. Now add salt and saute for  a few more  minutes.
 Then add  the chilli and  hing powders and cook  till the raw smell disappears and it binds together well.
Switch off the flame  and  let it cool completely .Transfer to  a  sun dried glass bottle. This   has  a long shelf life when handled carefully . When ever needed take a little out of the bottle into a bowl with a dry spoon –  add  a little boiled and  cooled water  . Mix well and relish.
