Orange peel Gothsu or Pickle

Usually we peal the orange and throw away the skin. The orange peal can be made as a pickle or gothsu and is a very good side dish for curd rice.

  2. Tamarind paste- 2 tsp
  3. Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
  4. Green chilli- 4 nos
  5. Chilly powder- 20 gms
  6. Jaggery- 20gms
  7. Asafoetida- 1/2 tsp
  8. Mustard seed- 1/2 tsp, urad dal- 1tsp, red chilli- 2nos(for seasoning)
  9. Curry leaves
  10. Oil- 5-6 tsp
Wash and cut orange peal into thin pieces. Slit green chillies. Microwave orange peals for 3 minutes adding a little water. In a sauce pan pour 4-5 tsp oil, heat. In the hot oil add fenugreek seeds, red chillies and urad dal. After spluttering add the cooked orange peal-green chilli mix and saute for five minutes adding three cups water. Add tamarind paste, salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder, jaggery, asafoetida, curry leaves and cook for 15 minutes. The consistency should be pickle-like thick. The orange gothsu is now ready.
