Nimmakaya or the tangy, spicy lime pickle

Will give your juice buds a mighty tickle

Cut cleaned and dried lemons into small quarters

Marinate them in salt and turmeric for three days, for starters

Heat sesame oil in a wok, splutter some mustard seeds

Cool the oil, add asafoetida and dry roast some fenugreek seeds.

Pound them, add marinated lemons, chillies, rest all, to the oil, give them a mighty stir

Serve this with curd rice, promise you, heaven is in your kitchen sir!
