Pattoud – a traditional Maharashtrian dish

We often run out of snacking ideas each time we expect guests at our home.


Even children start nagging you to prepare them something different when you repeat the age old snacks you’ve been preparing time and again.


Here’s a dish that gives you all the opportunity to impress your dear ones.


You may or may not have heard of Pattoud / Patodi, but this one’s a simple Maharashtrian dish made with Colocasia leaves popularly known as arbi leaves. Its a unique ingredient in itself & you’ll be surprised how this ingredient becomes palatable with a simple combination of the very humble besan / gram flour.


Quick Info : Arbi is also called aluki, taro, kochu in other languages.
