Lime                4 nos.

Jaggery            50 gms

Gojju powder  4 tsps

Water              500 ml

Wash lime in water. Drain the water. Cut each lime into half. Extract juice from them. Keep it aside in a bowl.

(Do not throw away the lime peels. Instead slice them into pieces. Use them for making “5 Tastes Lime Pickle”)

Take a small bowl. Put gojju powder in it. Keep adding small quantities of water and mix them thoroughly till you get a slightly dilute yet flowing consistency. Add salt and jaggery to this mixture.

Boil it in a vessel. When the bubbles start appearing, switch off the flame. Add lime juice.

Now you can season it.

Heat oil in a small skillet. Put mustard seeds. When they crackle, add red chillies and curry leaves. Switch off the flame. Add asafoetida and immediately pour it on to the gojju.

Lime Juice Gojju is now ready.

Health Tip:

Place whole lemon in the freezer overnight. Grate and use it for meal next day. This enhances the taste of food, helps one live longer and healthier. Consuming a whole lemon is far more enriching than just the juice.
