Colocasia / Taro leaves which is also known as Arbi leaves in Hindi and Sepankizhangu illai in Tamil is popularly used in the famous Gujarati recipe "Patra". These leaves are very good for heart, reduce cholesterol, good for digestion, also a great food for anaemic etc. Already I had posted a healthy chutney recipe using colocasia leaves and mixed sprouts and in my today's post, I have used these leaves along with tomatoes to get a delicious chutney. This tasty chutney pairs perfectly with Idly or Dosa. Always do remember to remove the thick vein from back of the leaves. Adjust the quantity of chilies according to taste bud.
