Gongura Pachadi (Chutney) | Khatta Bhaji Chatni

Gongura Pachadi (Chutney) Khatta Bhaji Chatni
Gongura Pachadi or Chutney is popular Andhra recipe made of gongura or sorrel leaves or khatta bhaji as it's called in Hindi.  It's very easy and taste really delicious it goes best with steamed rice but we can eat it with anything it taste wonderful with just anything for me. I learnt this recipe from my sis's MIL whom makes this pachadi so well and from then whenever I get sorrel leaves I made this chatni for sure.  This time I made this at my in-law place as now is khatta bhaji (sorrel leaves) season and we can find it everywhere so for a change.

To let my in-law taste goodness of Andhra I made this chutney and everyone just loved it.  It was over in no time and everyone kept asking for the recipe so you get the point it's good go and make some now if you can find gongura leaves (sorrel leaves) and enjoy along with family and friends.
