Grapes Gojju

After 2 months of India vacation, I am back to my cooking blog. Now it has been already been 4 months since I blogged.

Here I come up with my Mom's recipe - GRAPES GOJJU - The consistency of gojju is thick like tomato ketchup.
Some will be wondering if we can make any spicy dish out of fruits. Yes, you can:-)


Seedless Grapes- 1/2 cup
Coriander seeds- 1/2 tspn
Jeera-1/2 tspn
Uradh dhal- 1/2 tspn
Sesame seeds-1 tspn
Channa dhal- 1/2 tspn
Red chillies-5
Coconut-1/2 cup
Cinnamon- 1 small piece
Tamarind pulp- 1 tspn
Jaggery- 1 tspn
Salt- to taste


  • Dry roast coriander seeds, jeera, urad dhal, pepper, sesame seeds, channa dhal and red chillies in a pan.
  • Grind them along with coconut, cinnamon and eliachi. Make it as a coarse paste.
  • In a separate bowl. Boil this paste by adding around 1 cup of water. Add tamarind pulp(1tsn) , Jaggery(tspn) and salt. Switch off the stove once it is boiled and keep it aside. Now Add grapes. Do not boil it again after adding grapes.
  • Finally add seasoning( oil, mustard seeds, jeera and Hing).
  • Serve hot with hot rice

Same procedure we can follow with pineapple too.
