Gujarati-style Pattarveliya aka Patra is a steamed snack made from the heart-shaped leaves of the colocasia plant. A delicious sweet and salty and spicy and tangy gram flour mixture is spread on these leaves, which are then rolled up and steamed. These rolls are then cut and tempered with a generous amount of mustard, freshly grated coconut, sesame seeds and coriander. Deliciousness! This is quite a healthy snack, too, to boot!
Check out my latest blog post for a step-by-step guide of how to make Gujarati-style patra. In my post, I have tried to demystify the process of prepping these leaves (which just needs a bit of practice and patience, anyway!). Do read and let me know what you think of it, will you?
