Gongura PullaKura

imageGongura pullakura

This is another variety with gongura leaves/red sorrel leaves. This is also spicy, tangy with flavours of gongura, onion and garlic. I’ve prepared the recipe with red stem gongura leaves. But if you are using red variety more number of chillies need to be used comparatively. Here I present gongura pulla kura which is spicy, tangy and can be served with hot steamed rice along with a tsp of  gingelly oil. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
