         Orange Peel/Orange Zest Chutney

Oranges are the most commonly grown fruit in the world. Grated Orange Peel commonly known as orange zest, is added to foods for flavoring.

Orange peelings are usually discarded to the waste box. But many of us do not know that this discard contains many nutritional benefits. Orange peels has highest concentration of calcium and vitamin C.

You can also extract the highest concentration of calcium and vitamin C by simply soaking the orange peelings in a glass of water.

I learnt this recipe from my MIL. Try this tasty orange peel chutney which goes well with dosa, chapati or roti.

orange peel


3 tbsp Grated coconut
2 - 3 tbsp of finely chopped orange peel
2-3 red chillies
2 tbsp urad dal
2 tbsp bengal gram
2 strands curry leaves
1tsp fresh tamarind/1/4 tsp tamarind paste
1 tsp jaggery
salt to taste

For the tempering:
1 tsp oil
Few curry leaves finely chopped
1 tsp ural dhal
1/4  tsp mustard seeds
Salt to taste.
Asafoetida a pinch


1. Fry finely chopped orange peel with little oil for 5 mins in a medium flame or it peel changes its colour.  

2. Fry urad dal, bengal gram with little oil till you get good aroma. Add red chillies, curry leaves and fry for few minutes. Add grated coconut to it and fry for a min. Allow it to cool
3. In a blender, add step 1 and step 2 ingredients, tamarind, jaggery and salt to taste.  Grind them all together with a little water, to a slightly coarse and thick consistency.

4. Prepare the seasoning with mustard seeds, curry leaves and ural dhal. Sprinkle some powdered asafoetida.

Tastes great with dosa, idli, chapathi and rotis. Enjoy!
