Pathrodo is soooo delicious when it's just out hot of the steaming pot. My mouth's watering just thinking about it. Last summer I planted some taro roots to get some leaves and make pathrodo at least ones. I got more than I expected, made it several times :). I have already planted some this yr. Cant wait for it to grow. I came upon some of these expensive colocasia leaves in our local Indian store. Got 3 pkts( 4 in each). Not much to cook with but something is better than nothing isnt it especially when it's hard to get these here. It was just enough to make 3 mini loaves. We had 2 loaves immediately , kept the last one to make some of this hot stir fry. It's simply amazing what a simple leaf can do.A must try.Goes well with coffee or rice and dal.


Leftover Pathrodo - cut to small pieces
shallots - 7-8 nos , thinly sliced
oil- 1 tbsp
mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 tsp
asafoetida - a pinch
Curry leaves - 1 full sprig, torn to small pieces
Red chilli pdr - 1 tsp


Heat some oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. One's it starts to pop add cumin seeds, urad dal, fenugreek seeds,and curry leaves. Stir for a minute until the dal is lightly brown. Then add a pinch of asafoetida and chilli pdr.Add the shallots and some salt. Stir until its lightly brown.Now add the pathrodo pieces ,stir until its completely covered with all the seasoning. Lower the flame a bit and stir fry until light brown. Serve warm with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
