Vkshop, The Evil Eye Warder also known as “NAZAR BATTU” is used to keep home and businesses safe from all the evil spirits. This Battu or the “Nimbu–Mirchi Totka” as it is called, traditionally has “seven mirchis” (chilies) and “one nimbu” (lemon) to protect your home from all the bad and evil spirits. Nimbu Mirchi is used for keeping your family safe from evil spirits.
Nimbu Mirchi is generally hung outside the door or even in vehicles for keeping alakshmi away from your home. Alakshmi is known to be the sister of Lakshmi Devi, who brings poverty and misfortune. It is believed that Alakshmi liked sour and spicy things so once you hang Nimu Mirchi outside your home, Alakshmi comes, have her favorite food and go away from your home without entering the same.
