We have an edible Colocasia plant (Colocasia esculenta) growing in our garden and we use both the corms and leaves to make delicious dishes at home. Colocasia leaves are an excellent source of many vitamins, potassium, magnesium & folate and also contains lots of fiber and used in cooking in many parts of India.
Here is an easy recipe to make Colocasia Pakoda (Crispy Fried Fritters) using leaves of the plant.
Harvest a couple of young Colocasia leaves and wash them clean. Remove the stems and chop the leaves in to small pieces.
