  • 2 cups Red Sorrel leaves tightly packed
  • 6 to 8 Green chillies
  • 1 large Chopped onion

Tempering for gongura chutney

  • 3 to 4 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Mustard +urad dal
  • 3 to 4 Garlic pods - crushed
  • 2 to 3 Dry red chillies
  • 1 spring Curry leaves


  • Pick the leaves from the stalks and wash 2 to 3 times with water and keep them aside. In a large pan add the leaves, green chillies and ¼ cup of water and bring it to boil until the leaves are cooked properly or green chillies change their colour.
  • Once it is cooked, allow it to cool completely and add salt and grind into a smooth paste.
  • Heat a pan with oil for tempering, once it is hot add mustard, urad dal. Once it splutters add crushed garlic pods, dry chillies and curry leaves.
  • Add the chopped onions and saute until the onion changes its colour.
  • Then add the ground gongura paste. Simmer and cook till the oil comes out from the sides. It takes 10-15 minutes to get to that stage. Keep stirring occasionally to avoid the burnt at the bottom.
  • switch off the flame. Enjoy with steaming rice and ghee. And it also goes well with curd rice!


Adjust the green chillies according to your taste.
