Our very own Andhra Gongura Pachadi makes me drooling. I love gongura in any way it is made. Andhra people loves gongura pachadi. Gongura is available in two varieties , white and red. You can make gongura pachadi, gongura pappu, gongura mutton , gongura chicken , gongura fried rice and gongura pickle. My family loves gongura and I all these varieties using gongura. Even my daughter a very picky eater and veggie hater also loves this gongura pachadi 🙂
