Uppiliitta Naranga which literally means salted lemon is a very delicious pickle. It is simplicity at its best. Usually this is served with Kanji (Rice Porridge) or plain curd rice to awaken your dead taste buds either during nausea or just any flu. The longer it stays the better it tastes.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Lemon (chopped): 5 small - medium sized ones
Lemon juice: from 2 lemons
Green Chilies (slit): 2-3
Ginger ( chopped): 1 teaspoon
Garlic (chopped): 2 pods
Salt: 1 teaspoon or more according to taste and preference
Chop the lemons into small pieces. Add the chopped ginger, green chilies and garlic. Add the salt and lemon juice. Mix everything really well and store it in a air tight container. Let it sit outside for 2 days. Keep it refrigerated at least one week before you use it. The lemon will become nice and soft, soaked in all the juice and spices. Like wine, older it gets better it tastes.
