Home / Recipes / Pappu varieties with non-tangy green leaves in Telugu cuisine
Non-tangy greens are palak, bacchali koora (malabar spinach), gangavaila koora (purslane) etc. Since these are not tangy, we generally add tamarind extract to make it sour and tangy. I am posting the recipe for palak dal. The same recipe can be followed for any of the greens mentioned earlier. When raw tamarind is available in the season, this extract replaces the regular/ripe tamarind. The taste is definitely sour/tangy yet different. One needs to taste it to relish it.
