Some of my blog viewers and friends have suggested that i haven't posted Gojju in my kitchen world. So I have made simple gojju..anybody can easily prepare this...more useful for cooking learners/bachelors etc., this will match with hot plain rice Or chapati Or roti. And also it will be more useful for lunch boxes.

This gojju can be done with onion-tomato-capsicum combination, or can do with spring onions / eggplant (brinjal)/ okra (ladies finger) / plain tomato / plain onion gives a very good taste.


  1. Onion - 1 cup, chopped
  2. Green Capsicum / Bell Pepper - 1/2 cup, chopped
  3. Tomato - 1 cup, chopped
  4. Tamarind paste - 1 tsp
  5. Jaggery - 2 to 3 tbsp (add jaggery to sweeten the taste accordingly)
  6. Rasam powder - 1 tbsp
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Water - 1 & 1/2 cup
  9. Oil - 2 tsp
  10. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tso
  11. Asafoetida / Hing - 1/4 tsp
  12. Chana dal - 1 tsp (optional)
  13. Curry Leaves - 1 stalk
  14. Rice flour paste - 2 tsp (Water + Rice flour)

  1. Heat oil in a pan, Add mustard seeds, allow to splutter. Add hing, curry leaves
  2. Add chopped onion, capsicum stir fry, till they are well cooked.
  3. Add tomato stirfry.
  4. Add water boil for few minutes
  5. Add rasam powder, tamarind, salt & Jaggery. Bring to boil.
  6. Add rice flour paste(for thickness) stir well, till it becomes a semi thick.
  7. Serve hot
