  • 500 gms mutton cleaned and washed well
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 cups of red gongura leaves washed well sorrel leaves
  • 1 large sized onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves
  • 2 - 3 slit green chillies
  • 4 - 5 curry leaves optional


  • Firstly, boil or pressure cook the mutton or meat until it gets tender by adding salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, water and rest it aside.
  • In a cooking vessel add gongura leaves, add little oil and cook until they are soft.
  • When the leaves gather and become soft, cool it down and make a paste of the leaves and rest it aside.
  • In a separate cooking vessel, add oil and heat it, add chopped onions, slit green chillies and saute till the onions get slight pinkish.
  • Add curry leaves as an optional ingredient.
  • Add the stock of the pressure cooked mutton and cook well until the stock gets absorbed.
  • When the stock is absorbed totally add the cooked mutton and fry it well.
  • Finally, add the gongura paste into the curry, mix and cook for few minutes.
  • Check for salt, red chilli powder and cook for about ten minutes.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rice or roti.


1.If the flavor is too tangy then reduce the amount of sorrel leaves or increase the quantity of onions in the curry the next time you try the dish.
2.One can add red chilli powder while cooking gongura to reduce the sour taste.
3.Also try my gongura chicken recipe. And the same procedure can be applied to gongura mutton too.
