How to Make Resai Patra

  • Wash and remove thick stems and veins from the arbi leaves and keep aside.
  • In a bowl, combine the besan, sooji, green chilli paste, soda bicarb, yoghurt, oil, turmeric powder, salt, sugar and asafoetida, with a little water to make a paste.
  • Place one leaf on a flat board and apply the paste on the underside of the leaf.
  • Place another leaf over the first one and apply the paste again.
  • Fold both the sides up to the centre and roll the leaves tightly, starting from the bottom.
  • Make similar rolls with all the leaves, and arrange them on a greased sieve.
  • Steam cook on boiling water for about 15 mins. Remove the sieve from the vessel and grease the rolls with a little oil; let them cool.
  • To prepare the gravy:
  • Soak the tamarind in 2 cups of water, boil and strain the pulp.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. When they splutter, add the poppy seeds, asafoetida, red chillies, jaggery, salt, dhania-jeera, garam masala and chilli powders.
  • Bring to a boil, stir continuously and set aside.
  • Cut the patra roll into slices.
  • Just before serving, place the patras in the hot gravy, stirring gently.
  • Serve hot, garnished with the coriander leaves and grated coconut.
