Lemon Curry with Coconut Milk

Another of my mommy's wonderful recipes! I hope you'll all love the sour and tangy taste! We would be using the lemons with the skin on. So you would want to pick up lemons that are not bitter. I've always felt that the lemons you get in Whole foods are way less bitter than the ones you get elsewhere. So here you go.. 


1. Lemon - 3 finely chopped with skin on
2. Red onion - 1 finely chopped
3. Garlic - 3-4 cloves chopped
4. Green chillies - 3-4 finely chopped
5. Curry leaves - 1 spring
6. Vegetable oil - 2 tbsp
7. Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
8. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp 
9. Coriander powder - 2 tsp
10. Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
11. Black mustard seeds - 1 tsp
12. Salt - As desired


1.Mix the chopped lemon, some chopped curry leaves, green chillies and salt and keep aside for 1/2 hr. 
2. Heat oil in a pan. Add the chopped garlic and saute for about a minute. 
3. Add the red onions and saute for 2 minutes. 
4. Add the ingredients 7-9. Saute until the spices are slightly roasted, for about a minute.
5. Add the lemon mix, and 1/2 cup of water. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, until the lemon is cooked and the curry is a bit mushy. 
6. Bring the heat down to low and after a few minutes add the coconut milk. Mix well for about a minute and remove from the heat. 
7. Splutter mustard seeds and curry leaves and add to the curry. 

Serve with warm rice. 

Enjoy! :D
