Gongura Pappu (lentils Cooked With Sorrel Leaves
My hubby and I visit more Andhra restaurants than Kerala restaurants for this dal and the famous gongura chutney served at these places. My understanding of dals has totally changed ever since I adapted recipes from the Andhra cuisine. Sorrel leaves also known as gongura is a very sour leaf hence also known as Khatta saag. These leaves are added generously to dal, chicken, mutton, chutneys and are good replacement for tomatoes. These leaves have a red stalk and resemble the shape of tapioca leaves.
