Patra, fame is not easily earned, and if this recipe is so popular, it must be because it combines those rare qualities of flavour and good health! colcocasia leaves are very nutritious as well as tasty, especially if made into patra – a smooth paste of besan with spicy, sweet and sour flavours is applied over the leaves, rolled and steamed. This requires skill and practice; however, it is easy once you start doing it. You can also make mini patras by using small leaves to make small rolls. Some people like it plain piping hot from the steamer without tempering while some prefer it with the tempering. Healthy and tasty as the cooked option might be, the best way to have patras is fried! deep fry the cooked patras till crisp and have them with tea or sweet and sour chutney.
