Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. Colocasia 1/2 kg
  2. Water for boiling 3 large glasses
  3. Turmeric powder 1/2 teaspoon
  4. Sesame oil 3 tablespoons
  5. Red chilli powder 1 .5 tablespoons
  6. Coriander powder 1 teaspoon
  7. Salt 1.5 teaspoons
  8. Hing 1/4 teaspoon
  9. Curry leaves ( optional ) for flavour .


  1. Clean the Colocasias thoroughly under running water . Repeat the process for five times as it carries a lot of mud and sand along with it .
  2. Now take a large container , add 3 to 4 large glasses of water , add the cleaned colocasias and let it boil for about 12 minutes . Use a fork and check whether the vegetable is cooked or not . Don’t cook it too soft / mushy . Par boiled state will do .
  3. Now transfer these boiled colocasias to a bowl containing normal water . This step eases in removing the skin of the Colocasias .
  4. Start removing the skin of the Colocasias and place the whiter part of the Colocasias in a dry plate . Make sure the inner part doesn’t come in contact with even a drop of water . The more drier , the more crispier the roast would result .
  5. Heat 3 tablespoons sesame oil in a wide pan . Add turmeric powder , chilli powder , coriander powder , salt , hing to the oil and mix well along with the oil . Maintain a low flame so that this masala wouldn’t turn dark and burnt . Add the curry leaves ( 7) .
  6. Now add the cleaned , drained colocasias ( white part ) and keep tossing it for few seconds until the masala gets coated completely over the colocasias . Now let it roast slowly under low flame for 10 to 15 minutes . Keep tossing in between so that the sides cook , gets roasted evenly .
  7. Roast till the colocasias become golden brown , until you get an aroma .
  8. Serve hot .
