Ever since I started this space on web called udupi-recipes, it was my dream to post detailed recipe on patrode which is a unique dish from Udupi-Mangalore region. Colocasia leaves are the main leafy vegetable that is necessary to make this steamed dumpling. A good quality edible colocasia leaves are abundantly available in Udupi-Mangalore region during rainy season. These leaves are not sold in supermarkets or malls in UAE. This vacation I made it a point to bring a stalk of colocasia leaves from home land and I could successfully prepare patrode and take stepwise pictures of it.
Patrode is actually a steamed dumpling made by smearing spicy batter on colocasia leaves. When you have enough time and you are craving for a incredibly delicious snack, then you should definitely try this taste bud awakening snack. The tamarind, jaggery and spices used in making this patrode are towards higher end that is to nullify the effect of itchiness present in colocasia leaves. Patrode can be consumed as is pairing it up with butter, or it can be seasoned chopping the dumpling finely or it can be sliced and relished after shallow fry. Today I have explained patrode oggarane with step by step pictures. Hope it will help you in the kitchen.
