In Karnataka we have a theme in the cuisine where we use tamarind pulp as a base to cook many ingredients into a tangy side dish named Gojju. Cook ladies finger and it becomes ladies' finger Gojju, cook ripe mangoes and it becomes mango gojju. Traditionally made with sesame oil.

Here is a unique Orange peel Gojju. Orange peels are said to be rich in antioxidants and I have read testimonials of people who use orange peel for therapeutic purposes. They have previously been known for their high levels of vitamin C and its associated health benefits. This led me to understand why our grandmoms decided to make use of orange peels to make gojju.

Using all tastes and balancing them is said to be the way to great health. This bitter, sour, spicy and sweet dish will definitely tingle your taste buds.

Ingredients

  • Orange peel: 1 cup(finely cut)
  • Green chili: 1 tbsp(chopped)
  • Tamarind: size of a lime.
  • Chana dal: ½ tbsp
  • Methi seeds: ¼ tsp
  • Mustard seeds: ¼ tsp
  • Curry leaves: 1 sprig
  • Hing: 2 pinches
  • Turmeric: ½ tsp
  • Jaggery powder: ½- 1 tbsp
  • Rock salt: to taste

Method

  • Soak tamarind in one cup of warm water.
  • Use a knife to gently scrape and remove the white fibrous part of the inner side of the orange peels. Refer pic.

  • Chop the peel into fine pieces. Or cut shred and cut smaller. Refer pic.

  • Squeeze soaked tamarind and extract the pulp and separate any skin, peels or strings and keep aside.
  • Heat a pan and dry roast chana dal, methi seeds, and mustard seeds. When the chana dal is lightly browned, add green chilli, curry leaves, hing and cut orange peels and sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add tamarind extract, turmeric, and rock salt.
  • Cover and allow to simmer until the peels are soft.
  • Add jaggery powder and mix well. Taste and add salt accordingly. Increase the jaggery powder if you want it sweeter.
  • Turn off the flame and allow it to rest for a while before serving.
  • Transfer to a glass container. It can be preserved in a refrigerator for up to a week.

Wellcure Tip:

  • Adjust the consistency by adding more water.
  • It is meant to be bitter-sweet and tangy.

Eating guide:

  • Food group: Fruits (peel)
  • Fruits are best eaten raw and without mixing with other food groups.
  • Fruit peels are an exception since they do not contain fruit sugars.
  • Best served like we serve a pickle or with other dishes that are bland.

Not unbearably bitter. But just a wee bit. You can balance the bitterness with gud and imli further.
