Gongura is very famous in all parts of AP.No Telugu traditional meal is complete without gongura Pachadi.I love gongura in any form like pappu,gongura mutton or pickle.When I was in Chennai I very much missed this and when ever visited home used to take this greeny first.

  • 3 medium sized bunches of gongura/red sorrel leaves
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 medium sized onion cut into small pieces
  • 6-8 red chillies
  • 8 garlic pods
  • fisttful of cilantro leaves
  • 2 garlic pods cut into pieces and roasted in oil
  • 1 tsp salt
