Last weekend we visited my cousin’s place and she has a lovely backyard garden filled with Indian greens and veggies. My mom and I were got very excited and brought home bags full of gongura (sorrel spinach), bachalakura (malabar spinach/ pohi) and some tomatoes.
Indian stores here sell gongura & bachalakura for lot of money. I’m never even tempted to buy these sorry looking greens — they are almost wilted with absolutely no life left. This explains our excitement when we saw fresh, vibrant greens 🙂
I saw this recipe with gongura and black eyed peas on a Telugu cooking show and it looked very different from what we usually make with it. Garden fresh greens cook up in no time. This healthy & delicious curry goes well with both rice and roti.
