To begin making the Karnataka Style Orange Peels Curry recipe, Peel out 2 oranges. Gently scrape the white region from the orange peel using a spoon. Remove as much as possible as this will reduce the bitterness .
Chop the orange peels finely.
Soak tamarind in water. After it’s soaked well, squeeze out tamarind water and keep aside.
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan and temper with mustard seeds, urad dal, cumin seeds & fenugreek seeds. When it splutters add curry leaves, red chilli powder, green chilli, hing and turmeric powder. Mix and add chopped orange peel. Fry for 4-5 minutes.
Later add tamarind water, salt, jaggery, red chilli powder and rasam powder. Add some water and close the lid. Keep the flame on low medium and allow the peel to cook well. Mix in between.
Meanwhile in a mixing bowl, mix rice flour in water such that no lumps are formed.
When orange peels are cooked well, add the rice flour mix to the curry and allow it to boil for 1-2 minutes. Adding rice flour gives nice thickness to the gravy. If the desired consistency is attained, switch off.
Serve Karnataka Style Orange Peels Curry along with Cabbage Thoran and Whole Wheat Lachha Paratha for your weekday meal. It even tastes great with Steamed Rice.
