How to Make Gongura Chicken Curry

HideShow Media
Start by washing the gongura leaves nicely. Transfer them to a pan and cook with green chillies, salt, and a bit of water for about 4 to 5 minutes.
Allow it to cool, then grind them to a smooth paste. Now, heat some oil in a kadhai set on a low-medium flame.
Add chopped onions and saute until golden brown in colour. Add haldi, coriander powder, jeera, and ginger-garlic paste and fry for a few seconds.
Next, add the chicken pieces with red chilli powder and salt. Give it a nice mix, and then cover the kadhai with a lid. Allow it to simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the chicken pieces become soft.
You can add some more water at this stage if needed. Once done, add the prepared gongura paste and let it simmer again for a minute or two.
Mix well and sprinkle with fresh coriander leaves. Serve hot and enjoy! Your gongura chicken curry is ready to be relished.
