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:-
