This is one recipe I have been waiting to post since long. Reason being this is a special form of chicken curry in my native place which is Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. Sorrel leaves/gongura leaves are widely consumed in this part of the state. The taste of sorrel leaves/gongura leaves  is slightly sour and this is the best part of it. It is awesome no matter which ever way you make it. Here I am sharing with you the very famous Guntur recipe 'Gongura Chicken'.


Ingredients:

Chicken - 500 grams
Curd - 1 tablespoon
Red chilli powder - 1 tablespoon(Increase/decrease as per taste)
Salt - As per taste
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Oil - 3 tablespoons
Garam-masala powder - Half tablespoon
Coriander powder - Half tablespoon
Turmeric powder - Half tablespoon
Sorelle leaves / Gongura leaves - 2 bunches
Green chillies - 3-4
Onions - 1(finely chopped)
Curry leaves - 5

Preparation:

Marinate the chicken pieces with curd, red chilli powder, salt, ginger-garlic paste, one tablespoon of oil, garam masala powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder.


Keep this marinated chicken aside for half an hour.
Take a pan to heat and add half tablespoon of oil in it. Add the gongura leaves/sorrel leaves along with green chillies and fry till they are cooked on medium flame.


Once it is cooked properly, mash the leaves along with the green chillies to form a paste as show below. You can even grind it if you wish to. Keep this aside.


Now, take another pan to heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil to it. Once heated, add chopped onions and curry leaves. Fry for 5 mins.


Add the marinated chicken to this and mix well. Cook for 10-15 mins by covering it with a lid.


Once it is half cooked, add the gongura paste/sorrel leaves paste to the chicken and mix. Cook for another 10-15 mins by covering with a lid.


Once cooked you can see oil coming up on the top of the curry which is an indication that its cooked well.
Remove the curry from heat and serve hot.



Serving Options:

Serve the delicious gongura chicken with hot rice and enjoy its taste.
