Gongura Pappu

Few days back my friend gave me gongura/sorrel leaves from her backyard, it's so fresh and it's much is quantity too....so I used little to make Vankaya Gongura and used the remaining to make the dal......


1bunch of gongura/sorrel leaves, 1 cup toor dal, 6green chillies(adjust as per the spice levels), 1/4onion (roughly chopped), salt to taste, 1tsp.tamarind pulp, 2tbsp. oil, 1tbsp.mustard seeds, jeera, 1 pinch of turmeric, 3 dried whole red chillies, pinch of asefotida, 2 springs curry leaves.

pick the leaves from its stalk and chop them, slit the green chillies. Add the dal, chopped leaves, green chillies, chopped onion, 3cups of water in a bowl and cook it in the pressure cooker for 4 whistles. In a pan heat oil, once it is hot add jeera and mustard seeds, once they start to splutter add the whole red chillies, asefotida, turmeric, and turn off the heat and add this seasoning and tamarind pulp to the cooked dal and cook it for another 10min.till the flavors come together. Serve it with steamed rice......
