Colocassia stems tossed in garlic and flavoured with tamarind and jaggery are absolutely delicious. As I have already mentioned earlier a Tallasani in Konkani refers to a stirfry which is seasoned with garlic. I have posted a stirfry of these stems with yam too under the catagory Simple stirfries of this website.
18 Colocassia stems deveined
A handful of peeled garlic crushed
1 tbsp tamarind paste
2 tbsps jaggery
1 tsp Chilly pwder
2 tbsps Coconut oil or oil of choice
Devein and string the Colocassia stems thoroughly. Wash and chop into one inch sized pieces. Heat oil in a pan. Add the crushed garlic and roast to a deep golden brown. Add the chilly powder, toss and immediately drop in the Colocassia stems, salt and half a glass of water. Cover and cook till half done. Add the tamarind and jaggery and cook till done. Serve with Dal and rice.
