We are starting our final week of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is Side dishes for rice and/ or roti. I am one of those people who is always looking for new sides dishes. Old ones bore me and I pin and bookmark any new or interesting recipes.
I’m starting off this week with an interesting curry with Gongura and Paneer. I was piqued by the unusual combination of gongura and paneer — it is essentially a South meets North dish. I saw this on Vah Chef’s site and followed the recipe almost to the T.
This summer I was fortunate to have an abundance of gongura. My cousin in Delaware was kind enough to share her bounty and I had my own gongura plants in the container garden. So I made quite a few gongura dishes this year. I also froze some of the gongura paste to make more dishes in the winter.
This gongura curry is almost made in the same way as palak paneer, but with the sour gongura leaves has it’s own unique taste and texture. So this tastes very different from palak paneer. Do give it a try if you like to try new flavors and if you are looking for a very new curry to serve with your roti or rice.
