Hi, your picture is so tempting! I love gongura chicken, gongura chutney, and gongura pappu. I have not seen the leaves in the market here, and have not had a gongura dish for 8 months now:-( Awesome recipe. Jeera rice and Okra fry, coconute burfi, chicken biriyani..all my favorites..keep the recipes coming:-)
