Narthangai Sadam
Narthangai Sadam is the one which tastes almost like lemon rice.If you have left over rice in hand then it is so easy to make.Few weeks before i bought narthangai to make narthangai oorugai(pickle).After i made pickle i have reserved some to make this rice,whoever love the variety rice sure will love this rice too.

Apart from the usual festival rice varieties like Lemon rice, Puliyodharai(tamarind rice),coconut rice we also prepare Narthangai sadam very often.It hardly takes few minutes to prepare this Variety rice.It is also an easy lunch box recipe which can be make very quick in the busy mornings.
It goes well with paruppu(dal) thogaiyal or with papadams.I simply love it with potato fry.
