It’s end of August month now and I am back home after vacation. You probably can easily guess this by looking at the food below. I appreciate you for the right guess! Yes, I carried some really specific greens and veggies from Udupi which serves me for quick recipes. Like, this colocasia stem lentils curry. It is an absolute monsoon season curry that needs the tender juicy stem of colocasia. On top of that, the curry tastes awesome when you have few hogplums to include with. But never the less, the curry tastes decently wonderful even with tamarind. Hogplums and colocasia get along with each other in a delicious way which you realize when you whip this up yourself.
While unpacking the bag and baggage takes up most of my time right now, I spend less time in kitchen. The easy and tasty colocasia stem lentils curry which I prepared today was quite time saving. It took just 20-25 minutes in total. The lunch with simple rice, curry plus yogurt tasted beyond any feast.
If you are a lover of traditional food that has seasonal veggies and spices blend, then you must try this. But let me warn you, you must choose colocasia variety which doesn’t itch. Otherwise you end up having itchy throat and tongue after eating the curry.
