Ingredients:
  • 2 Medium size orange
  • big lemon size Tamarind
  • 3-4 tbsp Jaggery you can do +/- based on your taste
  • 1 tsp Rasam powder
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 tbsp Rice powder
  • Salt to taste.
  • To Temper
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds Jeera
  • 1/4 tsp Fenugreek seeds methi
  • 1 tsp Urad dal
  • 1 broken Red Chilli
  • 1 Green Chilli ( Slit )
  • A pinch Hing /Asafoetida
  • 1/4 tsp Haldi turmeric
Procedure:
  • Peel out 2 oranges. Gently scrape the white region from the orange peel using a spoon. Remove as much as possible.. this will reduce the bitterness.
  • Chop finely orange peels.
  • Soak tamarind in water . After its soaked well ..squeeze out tamarind water and keep aside .
  • In a kadai take some oil and temper with mustard seeds,urad dal ,jeera & fenugreek seeds. When it splutters add curry leaves , red chilli , green chilli , hing and haldi. Mix. Add chopped orange peel. Fry for 4-5 mins.
  • Later add tamarind water , salt , jaggery , chilli powder and rasam powder . Add some water and close the lid . Keep the flame on low medium and allow the peel to cook well. Mix in between.
  • Mean while , in a mixing bowl , mix rice flour in water such that no lumps are formed.
  • When orange peels are cooked well , add the rice flour mix to the curry and allow it to boil for 1-2 mins. Adding rice flour gives nice thickness to the gravy. Taste test. If the desired consistency is attained , switch off.
  • Serve yummy Orange gojju with hot rice / chapathi / Plain rice roti ( Ubbu Rotti ) / idli etc . Since its simmered nicely , tastes good for 3-4 days without fridge too.
  • Notes:
  • The peels should be fresh ... else they won't taste good .
  • Scrapping the inner white from the peel helps in reducing bitterness to some extent .
  • I have used a mix of rasam powder as well chilli powder . You can either use any of them or add both as i do .
  • Basically this curry is tangy , sweetish So you may have to add more /reduce jaggery n tamarind qty depending on the sourness of peel.
