I make almost similar gongoora pappu ocassionally. gongoora leaves need not be chopped( we never do that in andhra anyways). also as someone else mentioned, adding tamarind to gongoora pappu makes it even more tangy and spoils the taste. for Thotakoora Pappu (spinach - dal) adding tamarind works fine..but not for gongoora pappu.

Gongura doesn`t get cooked in 5 min, and Curry leaves are not added at last. It should be fried with others. No tamarind is needed.
