Piyava Gojju (Spicy- Tangy Onion Dip)

Piyava Gojju is a traditional recipe. It is spicy and tangy and requires only few ingredients. I had heard about this dish long time back from a food group. Finally I tried making it. It turned out very tasty. The spiciness is very well balanced by the tanginess and a little crunch is provided by the onions and the coconut oil gives a wonderful aroma. Do try making this awesome dish and enjoy!!

I adapted the recipe from a cook book written by Jaya V Shenoy.

  • Roasted Dry Red Chilli - 2
  • Tamarind - Small gooseberry sized
  • Salt- To taste
  • Coconut Oil- 1/2- 1 tsp
  • Onion, finely chopped- 2 Tbsp


Take roasted dry chilli, tamarind and salt, in a blender.

Grind it to get a coarse paste. Then add little water and grind again to get a smooth paste.

Then transfer it to a bowl. Add more water to get desired consistency (final consistency is little watery). Then add in chopped onions and coconut oil. Mix well. Add salt, if required.

Piyava Gojju is ready!!

Serve it as a side dish to rice, undi or dosa. Above measurement serves 2-3 people.
