Naranga Curry/Instant Lemon Pickle

Hi friends..I am back here after a short break.Was totally busy with so many things and in between had a little problem with our Internet connection due to which I could not be on FB too.We people plan and say so many things in life for our future but we don't know whether we can fulfill it because we really don't know what the Almighty has planned or stored for us just the next second.That's why it is said in the holy Quran:  
                  And  never  say  of  anything, "Indeed,I  will  do  that  tomorrow,"Except  [when  adding],“If Allah wills." And  remember  your  Lord  when  you  forget (it) and  say,  “Perhaps my  Lord  will  guide  me  to  what  is  nearer  than  this  to  right  conduct.”(18:23-24)
This is the reason why when we determine to do something in future  we say "In Sha Allah"..that is,one tries his or her maximum and the rest is left to the Creators will.
          I have missed browsing many of my friends posts but In Sha Allah,I will keep on them soon...and now about today's post, its an easy Lemon pickle usually called as Naranga curry which makes a very good combo with plain rice or biriyanis...This is served as one of the side dish for Sadhya.
