Neer Elumichangai (Oil-Free Lemon Pickle) - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
This Preserved Lemons soaked in water is the most favourite side dish for curd rice in our family. We are addicted to the taste of this Neer Elumichangai which also goes very well for Poricha Kuzhambu, More Kuzhambu and Upma varieties.
It gives the taste of a pickle and at the same time oil and spice free and hence even elders can have safely...
