Patra Leaves Sabji

Colocasia  or Patra leaves or in regional way "Aloo" is very Traditional Maharashtrian dish.

Here is what we need -

  • 3 to 4 Patra leaves
  • handful of peanuts
  • handful of chana daal
  • 2 green chilies
  • pinch of turmeric
  • salt per taste
  • 1 lemon size tamarind
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 1 tbs jaggery

Preparation -

Soak peanuts and chana daal in warm water for 5 to 6 hours. Wash the leaves and chop them. I make this curry in pressure cooker. It saves a lot of time and cooks well.

Soak tamarind for 1 hour. And extract the pulp.

In a pressure cooker add oil. Once hot add slit green chilies. Put soaked chana daal and peanuts. Put turmeric. Add chopped leaves, tamarind pulp, jaggery and salt.

Pressure cook it till 3 whistles. It gives wonderful aroma as the sabji itself is so flavorful.

This goes very well with Chapati. Bone Appetit!!
