Thampeta Recipe | How to make Thampeta Recipe (Orange Burn)

Hi friends, thank you all for visiting my website and youtube channel. Today's recipe is Thampeta recipe.
Thampeta (తంపెట), I really don't know how the name came. Those who can read Telugu can read the word given in the brackets. Others pronounce it first 'th' should be like 'Th' in 'theme', 'am' should be like 'um' in 'jump' or 'umbrella', 'pe' should be like in 'pen', and final 'ta' should be like in 'TOUGH', TURBINE.

Thampeta Recipe
Now about the fruit. It is called Citron or Oranges or Narinja in Telugu. According to google it is also called rough lime. We get them only in in Krishna, Guntur, Godavari and Prakasam districts of Andhra Pradesh state in India. Rather I have seen them only in those parts. These are available during winter season only. The fruit is sour in taste. Ripen fruit tastes sweet. The citron fruit skin has got lot of wrinkles or crease on it. Unlike sweet orange and lemon the skin of citron fruit is thick and also green in colour. Inside the fruit it appears like any other citrus fruit.
Now about the recipe. This recipe needs very less ingredients. And also it takes very less time to make. It goes very well with hot piping rice and a spoonful of ghee. Each half portion of the fruit can be shared among two people. Those who eat spicy food can take one half portion.
