Orange Peel Pickle

Am sure after going through this pickle recipe,you will definitely think twice before trashing your orange peels. Yes even its happening for me too, eventhough oranges are dead cheap here. Orange season here in Paris starts from November and during winter we consume usually many kgs, as we need more vitamin C to fight against the nasty winter. Obviously my fruit basket will always have this healthy vitamin rich fruits, either juice or as fruits every morning my kids will have their dose of vitamin by having this fruits. Needless to say, how easy for me to gather those orange peels.

When i chosed condiments or street foods for this week's theme for this month's long marathon, i was searching something interesting as street foods, but dunno y i couldnt able to get a proper recipe, then i thought of making a pickle with olives, but since i have already posted them here i started thinking about why not to try a pickle with oranges. Finally after a long hesitation, i went on cooking it. This pickle tastes seriously fabulous after a day.I tried a small quantity of this pickle, as i was bit anxious about the taste, but trust me this pickle is completely different,spicy,mildly sweet and simply flavourul.


1cup Finely chopped or cubed Orange peels
1tbsp Red chilly powder
3tsp Sesame oil
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
2tsp Salt

Dry roast:
1/2tsp Fenugreek seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1tsp Mustard seeds

Dry roast the ingredients given under the list 'dry roast' and powder them as fine powder, keep aside.

Wash the orange peels and drain the water completely.

Spread them over a towel and let them dry in room temperature for 2 hours.

Put them in a vessel and pressure cook them upto 3 hisses, put off the stove.

Once the steam gets off, cool completely the orange peels.

Heat the oil, in a pan, let splutters the mustard seeds, add the grounded powder, red chilly powder, fry for few seconds.

Add immediately the cooked orange peels,salt and toss everything gently until the peels gets well coated by the spices.

This pickle tastes better after a day.

Enjoy with parathas, rotis or simply with curd rice.
