Some times readers should take quotes from us too! :) Deeba, hope u don't mind silly me!
Coming to this post title...my home has been a bhandaar of Konkani delicacies..food getting all the limelight every single day! The dishes I am sharing today involve the use of leaves, first dish is a sweet dish made using Turmeric Leaves the other one using Paatra or Colocasia Leaves.
'Patholi' is a sweet dish and has been blogged so beautifully by my fellow Konkani bloggers, but the gist of it is, a layer of ground rice+coconut, followed with a layer of 'Chuna' ie. wet grated coconut+jaggery mixture in center, steamed for ten minutes, after which the leaf is discarded and the steamed delicacy is devoured with a dollop of home made 'Toop' or clarified butter! Oh I love this heavenly sweet...yes..over any cakes too! :) Flavors registered at childhood seldom leave the brains! :) Vee, thanks a lot !

'Pathrado' is taken as a snack or side dish of Manglorean Konkani cuisine which is either steamed, shallow fried or curried once steamed! This is TAL-la-Lo, as in fried one. Its again a bunch of leaves..Colocasia or Paatra leaves on which a ground spicy mixture is applied, using 8-10 layers of leaves and the ground paste as a binding and taste enhancing agent, rolled up as in swiss roll, steamed for 20 mins and savoured! Do check Shilpa's pictorial. THANKYOU SHILPA.
