Orange Peel Gotsu

I love oranges. (My husband hates it.. so what ?)
I made a orange Mint smoothie which tastes yumm. Will put the recipe soon.

With orange peels, i thought of making gotsu. It will be heavenly tasty with curd rice. Very simple one.
Since me and my mil alone like sour taste, I made only little. All others at home can’t even bear a little sourness in curd.
Actually this dish will not be that sour, it will be little sour + lil bitter. I love it.

·         Orange Peel from one big orange – roughly chopped
·         Tamarind – 1 small lemon sized ball
·         Asafetida – ¼ tsp
·         Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp
·         Jaggery – 1 tsp
·         Salt as per taste
·         Water as much as required.
To temper :
·         Gingely oil – 1tsp
·         Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
·         Fenugreek seeds – ¼ tsp
·         Curry leaves – 1 string
·         Red chillies – 2 numbers (roughly broken to 2-3 pieces)
Soak tamarind in warm water for 10 mins. Take the juice, discard the pulp and keep aside.
Roughly chop Orange peels.
Heat a kadai, add oil, add mustard seeds, let it crackle. Add fenugreek seeds, once it is roasted well, add curry leaves and red chilies.  
Once they are roasted well, add the chopped orange peels and Turmeric powder and sauté for 2-3 mins till it is peels are soft enough.
Add the tamarind juice and Asafetida. Let it boil till the raw smell of the tamarind leaves.
If the mixture is too watery, you can add the besan flour mixed in water. If not skip this step.

Serve it with curd rice. Yummilicious. Store it in fridge, it stays up well for 3 days.
