Gongura Chutney | Gongura Pachadi | Sorrel leaves Chutney

Gongura Chutney/Pachadi, a spicy and tangy chutney made from gongura leaves. I had seen lot of recipes online with gongura leaves including both veg and non-veg and also heard from friends how good it is, but  i never had the chance to taste this chutney until i tried on my own. Usually the nearby indian store have the stock of gongura leaves, but mostly they are not fresh, but luckily last week it was so fresh, so immediately picked one and tried this chutney within few days. The natural tanginess from the leaves gives great taste to the chutney and ST liked it so much, since i'm not into any tangy dishes like pickle n all, i couldn't have it more than a spoonful.But with that limited tasting, i can definitely say that it was so good and those who like spicy and tangy dishes, definitely give it a try. Now let's see how to make this gongura chutney.
