One of the main items that make every Assamese cuisine complete – ‘Kazi Nemu’ – which is exclusively grown and found in Assam, has made its way into the markets of London – the capital of Great Britain. 

A consignment of ‘Kazi Nemu’ was exported from Guwahati in Assam to London in June and is now available in different supermarkets in the British capital including at the Al-Hamra Supermarket at Northampton in England’s East Midlands region. 

Earlier, between December 2020 and January 2021, a massive consignment of ‘Kazi Nemu’, also known as Assam lemon, weighing nearly 6 MT was exported to the European markets. 

‘Kazi Nemu’ are used for preparing refreshing drinks and pickles as well as garnishing curry and other dishes.
