                                                                    This is my 300th post and it is karthigai so it cannot be anything other than a sweet dish.Yes I made wheat flour appam.We ususally finish making the pori urundais during the day and do this appam just before lighting the lamps for neivedhyam.

Kadarangai Pickle

                                                                 I got some kadarangai from Pattukkottai my sister's MIL bought it from her house.Kadarangai is another type of large sized ripe lemon.Its unique bitter taste makes it special.My mother used to make pickle out of it in the traditional way.I checked out meenakshi ammal's cook book and it is similar to the traditional one.
There are two ways of preparing this pickle.One is the way i have explained below and the other is if you want to prepare instantly then you  roast the whole fruit in a pan with a little bit oil,cool,chop and add chilli powder,salt,turmeric powder,asafoetida and season with gingelly oil and mustard seeds.
