Gondhoraj Lebu Granola

Ever since I got my hands on a Gondhoraj Lebu, I haven’t been able to stop myself squeezing it on everything, calling aloud to anyone in the room (mostly to myself, I’m afraid) about its luscious brightness. Contrary to the pervasive notion, the fruit is not a very juicy one. Strength is often required to extract its juice, however, the tiniest drop can pep up the dullest, most insipid food.

This granola has a delicate flavour; it is scented with limes rather than tingling with it. I would highly recommend pairing it with a mango smoothie, but I’m aware the season is over and in that case, passion fruit or pineapple should work incredibly well too.

What you will need – (To fill a 2 litre jar)
  • Rolled oats⁣ – 3 cups
  • Cashews⁣ – 1 cup, chopped

Method –
