Colocasia Leaf Chutney


Hello and welcome to my creative corner again. Today I will share a unique recipe of a chutney made from Colocasia or Colocasia Esculenta which is a native, tropical and perennial plant of southern India and Southeast Asia. It is primarily grown as a root and as a leaf vegetable. I have tried a chutney of it, tangy and tasty and quite unique with garlic, lemon and green chilies which I am sure you will all like. The recipe is as follows:-


  1. Colocasia leaves – 250 gm.
  2. Green Chillies – 2.
  3. Garlic(chopped) -1/2 tsp.
  4. Lemon Juice – 2 tsp.
  5. Carom seeds – 1/2 tsp.
  6. Asafoetida – A pinch.
  7. Mustard Oil – 1 tbsp.


Step 1

Wash and chop off the stem of the colocasia leaves and boil it till mushy.
