Gongura (sorrel leaves) are very rich in iron, vitamins and folic acid. They are used extensively in Andhra cuisine. I have posted many recipes with these tangy greens. Today's recipe is a simple and delectable gongura pappu. A thicker version of dal is known as pappu in Telugu. It is either made plain or with some additions like spinach, sorrel leaves, tender tamarind leaves, amaranth leaves etc etc...
