Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter G
Theme: A-Z Vegetarian Dishes from Andhra Pradesh
Dish: G for Gongura Pulihora/ Tangy & Spicy Sorrel Leaf Rice
Letter G stands for veggies like Goruchikkudukaya (cluster beans) and the very famous Andhra Gongura. G also stands for ingredients like Godhuma Pindi/ Rava (wheat rava/ flour) and for dishes like Gavvalu, Gaarelu etc.
But today it is gongura which is going to be the main ingredient and instead of making a pickle, I’m going to make a rice dish. The trend I heard in A.P is now to make pulaos & biryanis with gongura. Every ingredient everywhere is getting a global makeover and so our humble gongura is also following suite 🙂
Since the theme here is A-Z dishes from A.P., I didn’t overly complicate the dish. I made it like a pulihora and used gongura to add the tanginess. I have to say I liked this rice better than mixing the pickle with rice. I think all the ingredients compliment each other very well and make this a very tasty one-pot dish.
