The present study was designed to develop and evaluate the nutritional, functional, sensory properties and texture profile data of garlic peel powder fortified viz. 2%, 5% and 10% value added pukhelein and compared with control sample. Garlic peel showed crude fiber, carbohydrate and ash content viz. 60.57%, 21.71% and 16.34%, total phenolic content (TPC) of 108.79 µg/ml GAE, total flavonoid content (TFC) of 33.27 mg Quercetin/ml and antioxidant activity (33.38 mg/ml) respectively. 5% formulation exhibited the highest crude fiber, protein content, TPC (326.6 µg/ml GAE), TFC (91.38 mg Quercetin/ml) and total antioxidant content (54.68 µg/ml).Sensory evaluation data showed good result in 5% formulation in terms of appearance, texture and taste. Texture profile analysis showed that a considerable decrease in hardness, springiness, cohesiveness, gumminess and chewiness and resilience. The outcome of the study revealed that 5% garlic peel powder fortified pukhelein exhibited the best result among all formulations.
