Narthampazha Juice / Citronade
Citron or narthangai is an amazing fruit. Its just like lemon, but larger in size, sour and has thick rinds. The unripe fruit is used to make pickles. But the ripe ones are equally tasty. Just go ahead a make juice -Citronade - as yummy as lemonade. It cools the body and a very good thirst quencher.
Juice from citrons - 3/4 cup
Water - 3 cups
Salt - a pinch (optional)
Mint leaves - for garnish
Squeeze and filter the citrons. Add sugar, salt, water and mix well till sugar dissolves. Add ice, pour in glasses, garnish and enjoy.
I used 2 large sized fruits. Use according to the available size of the fruit,preferrably ripe ones.
Adjust sugar according to your taste.
If the juice is sour, add a little more water and sugar. Sourness depends on the fruit used.
