Authentic Recipe of Pindjur. Savory Serbian Traditional Tomato and Red Pepper Sauce.

This traditional Serbian recipe for Pindjur is just the thing for you if you like spicy sauces. And you can make it while making Ajvar.

Things to know about Pindjur Recipe

The recipes for Ajvar and Pindjur are very similar, with few differences. Firstly, Pindjur is made from peppers and tomatoes and Ajvar is made from eggplants. The texture is a lot lighter, and the thickness is different also.

That’s why Pindjur is a great sauce substitute for tomato paste in making pizza. Because of its texture, Pindjur is most commonly used in the summer. Like Ajvar, Pindjur can also be used as a spread on bread or other pastries and as a side dish.

The key to making the dish perfect is to use the right kind of pepper, Serbia’s most favored pepper, the Kurt’s Gate Peppers.
