Gongura Pacchadi

After long time I could find fresh Sour Green Leaves in our Local grocery store,picked and made Gongura Pacchadi,my all time F avourite.Making this is very simple.


Goungura Leaves(Sour Greens):3 cups
Tamarind:Small Gooseberry Size(soak in water,just to make it soft which helps while blending)
Salt:To Taste
Red Chillies:To Taste
Oil:2 spns
Onion:1 small(very finely Chopped)
Garlic:3 cloves(Finely Chopped/Crushed)


1.Heat a pan on flame,add oil when hot add the gongura leaves,red chillies and fry till the gongura leaves are not sticky(Usually the gongura leaves are sticky when we fry them).
2.Now add salt,tamarind ,fry for 2 mins ,turn off the flame and then let the mixture cool down,once done add it to a blender and make a smooth paste.Add water if needed.
3.Finally add onion and garlic that are sauted in oil.
4.Serve it with hot white rice and it tastes heavenly.
