    Orange Vetha Kozhambhu

    I had very sour oranges and wanted to try this recipe. It came out so well. I would like to share the recipe here. It had unbelievable taste. This tastes like nathangai (citron) pachadi. People who are in such a region where they don’t get citron can make use of oranges.

    Ingredients :

    1 no. - orange (it can be kamala orange or Florida orange)
    1 no. - Red Chilli
    1/2 tsp. - Channa Dal
    3/4 tsp. - Mustard seeds
    1/4 tsp. - Asafietida
    2 tbs. - Sesame Oil
    2 to 3 tsp- Sambar Powder (this can be adjusted to the spice level)
    1/4 tsp. - Turmeric Powder
    Curry leaves
    Gooseberry size lemon (this can be reduced according to the sourness of the Orange)
    1 tsp. - Jaggery
    Salt to taste

    1. Soak the tamarind in hot water for 15 mts. Then squeeze the pulp adding some water.

    2. In a pan (don’t use steel pan as it gives some different taste) add the oil. When the oil is hot add mustard seeds. When it splutters add channa dal, asafietida and red chilli sauté till channa dal turns golden brown color. Then add chopped oranges and sauté for a while. Now add the tamarind extract, sambar powder, turmeric powder, jaggery and salt. Boil it till it reaches to the required consistency and the raw smell of the powders go. Switch off the flame.

    In makkal kacchitti orange peel with other ingredients ibid my mom used to prepare this orange v kozhmbu. Oil film in rainbow patches floating over the VK in odd shapes here & there delights the viewer of this kozhmbu ( not to be mistaken for Tamil word for chaos or perturb)
    Thanks & regards.
    God- Give us always warm rice & V Kzhuambu.

    Yes add orange pieces also. Usually they make it with orange peel. Since it was too sour I added the pieces also. It tasted awesome. All recipes which I am posting are from my kitchen
