This is a simple and easy chutney with just three main ingredients and using oil for frying and salt to taste.The interesting thing about this is preparing this chutney with the Mortar and Pestle and just Pounding till all gets well crushed….this method adds more taste and it looks appetizing…This Gongura is my all time favourite sour greens.
Gongura (Red sorrel) Leaves – 1 cup
Onion – 1 roughly chopped
Spicy Green chillies – 3-4 chopped
Oil – 2 tsps
Salt – to taste
Heat a small pan and add a tsp of oil and fry onion and green chilli till onion turns light brown on edges.
Remove and add another tsp of oil and wilt the gongura leaves and as they turn the colour remove and cool.
Now put all the ingredients and salt into the mortar and pound with the pestle till you get the desired chutney.
Remove into a bowl and serve as an accompaniment to your lunch dishes.
