How to Make Patrode (Aloo Wadi)

  • Remove fibres and stems from colocasia leaves (arvi leaves) and wash thoroughly.
  • Soak rice and toor dal in water for an hour.
  • Grind coconut gratings along with roasted red chillies, tamarind and asafoetida, without adding much water.
  • Before taking out the masala, add salt, soaked rice and dal and grind to a smooth paste. It should be dry enough to stick to the leaf surface.
  • Spread a large arvi leaf on a wooden board with its back and stalk end towards you. Smear masala paste evenly all over the surface.
  • Place a smaller leaf over it and repeat the smearing process.
  • Do not pile the leaves one on top of the other, but place it across each other.
  • After 5 to 6 leaves are placed one across the other, fold in the edges for about 2 inches on both side.
  • Smear the folds with some paste and then roll gently but firmly, from the stalk end to the tip, in the shape of a cylinder.
  • Tie it with a thread if the roll is loose.
  • Cut each roll crosswise into two pieces, and steam it for about 45 mins.
  • Take out and cut into desired thickness and serve hot.
