Gongura Pachadi / Sorrel leaves Chutney

Gongura pachadi is the most popular dish in Andhra Pradesh. I found these gongura leaves in our recent trip to the grocery store and i immediately grabbed a bunch. So, here comes the irresistible chutney.


Gongura leaves 2 cups
Green chillies 5
Garlic pods 3
Cumin seeds 1/2 tbsp
Small onion 1
Salt to taste


Oil 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1/4 tbdp
Cumin Seeds 1 tbsp
Urad dal 1/2 tbsp
Red chilli 1
Curry leaves few


1. Heat some oil in a pan and fry cumin seeds, garlic and gongura leaves. Fry till the moisture disappears. Once they are cooled, grind them together with salt. Add chopped onions to it and mix well.

2. Do the seasoning and add it to the grinded pachadi. Serve with hot rice and ghee.
