Nimbu-Mirchi Significance:

In India, it is a common sight of hanging lemon (nimbu) tied along with seven chillies (Mirchi) at the entrance of a door, inside of our cars, or at the back of any vehicle. Nimbu Mirchi or Seven green chillies and lemon hanging on a thread outside the entrance wards off the evil eye of Alakshmi, the evil sister of Goddess Lakshmi. Alakshami is termed to be inauspicious. Moreover, it brings misery and trouble along with financial issues in an individual’s life. Thus, people change the old ones with new ones once in a while.

The story behind: 

There is also a story behind. Once, both the sisters Alaskhmi and Lakshmi came to a merchant’s house and asked him to describe how beautiful they looked individually. The merchant diplomatically managed the situation. He bowed and replied, “Jyeshtha (elder sister) Alakshmi looks gorgeous as she goes from inside to the outside of the house, and Kanishtha (younger sister) Lakshmi also looks beautiful as she enters the house from outside to the inside.”

Thus people came to a conclusion that Alakshmi brings poverty and misery. So, she looks good when she exits the house and to ward her off, nimbu and mirch are on the entrance. According to Ayurveda, lemon or nimbu is ‘pitta-shamak’. It reduces anger or irritation. And chilly or Mirchi are tamasic /rajasic by their hot nature. So if Alakshmi consumes these chillies, the lemon is sure to decrease her anger to leave the house.

Nimbu Mirchi

The Belief:

According to legends, there is a belief stating that wherever Lakshmi goes Alakshmi follows. Moreover, Goddess Lakshmi enjoys sweets thus, she is served sweets in pujas. In contrast, Alakshmi likes sour and spicy food like nimbu and Mirchi. So people dangle nimbu and Mirchi outside the home. Lastly, Alakshmi accepts the offerings and does not enter. According to the belief, Alakshmi loses all her anger and after consuming lemon and chillies. The sour flavour of the lemon and the spiciness of the chillies helps in doing so. Moreover, after this Alakshmi leaves without throwing her evil eye. 

This nimbu Mirchi remedy is also called Nazar Battu. The nimbu mirchi is changed every Friday night and replaced by a new one on Saturday morning. Later, it is thrown away from the place so the address cannot be found ever.
