Narthangai Citron Thokku Pickle is a spicy and tangy pickle made with grated Narthangai Citron (Bitter Citron). Freshly made by mixing grated Narthangai Citron with fine spices, oil and other ingredients, it is a good accompaniment to many South Indian rice dishes, especially Curd rice. It is called Dhongakaya in Telugu dialect spoken at Rajapalayam or Bitter Orange in English. This Pickle is part of the Seasonal Fresh Pickle offerings from Panakam-Tradition in a Bottle.

Narthangai can be a flavourful substitute for Tamarind in certain food preparations. Narthangai has a lot of medicinal value. Rich in nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and flavonoids, Narthangai Citron increases the appetite, helps in digestion, and cools the body.
