Total Time : 20 Min


Serves : 6
  • Peel of one Orange

  • Juice of One orange

  • 4 tbsp jaggery

  • 2 tbsp Oil

  • ½ tsp Mustard

  • Curry leaves

  • 2 tsp tamarind pulp

  • Dry roast

  • 1 tbsp Urad dal

  • 1 tsp Fenugreek or Methi seeds

  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds or Til

  • 1 tsp Dhania

  • 4 red dry chillies

  • Pinch of asafetida or Hing


  • Dry roast all the above ingredients, powder and set aside in the blender itself.In a pan heat 1 tbsp oil and fry the orange peel that should be chopped finely. Once soft remove from pan and cool.
  • Add the cooled peel to the roasted ingredients along with the tamarind juice and pulse to make a coarse paste. Do not make it a fine paste. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add mustard seeds when it is hot. Once they splutter add the curry leaves.
  • Now add the paste, jaggery or molasses and cook till it is blended nicely along with orange juice and tamarind pulp if you choose to add. Your special Orange peel chutney or Gojju is ready to eat.
  • Remove from fire and cool. Then transfer into a mason jar and serve with roti, paratha, rice, bread or even with a dosa. I like to just lick a spoonful whenever I open the fridge.
