Gongura Potato

 A simple and green color side dish made with potatoes and red sorrel leaves. In this recipe the potatoes are simmered and sauteed in red sorrel leaves puree along with some spices. I always try to incorporate greens in my recipe, that's how i came with this idea. Today i bought red sorrel leaves and decided to cook along with potato. I chose potato because of its versatility. The sorrel leaves have a lemony tangy flavour and goes well with potato. I love eating this with curd rice. Try this healthy recipe, sure you will like it.
