Citrus juice

Not just the juice, even the zest makes a lot of difference to your dish and that is the magic lemon and other citrus ingredients offer. From salads to dals, and juices to cakes, you can use this ingredient as you wish (but mildly) and it will give you that kick. While the juice gives you the tang, zest gives a hint of tartness.

Use it fresh, powdered or in the form of juice, this strong ingredient adds a subtle freshness to the dish and goes well as salad dressing, and when mixed with juices, it makes it even more flavourful. It gives a little extra zing when used raw, and mellows well when cooked. (Image: istock)


It is often used in tempering in Indian cuisines because it enhances the taste and look of the dish. Apart from that, it is loaded with nutritional benefits too. If you don’t like it in tempered form, simply roast and grind and use it for dry veggies, raita, drinks, and salad and let the aroma do its magic. (Image: istock)
