pathrode or patrode recipe

Pathrode or patrode recipe explained with step by step pictures. This type of pathrode is in practice across Mangalore and Malnad region of Karnataka. The pathrode recipe is slightly different in other parts of Karnataka. Pathrode or patrode is a very tasty snacks or breakfast recipe prepared using rice and colocasia leaves. Pathrode or patrode is also familiar by name patra vadi or patra vada.

As I know only few varities of colocasia leaves (kesuvina ele) are considered as edible ones. As per my parents the other varities will itch a lot. But if you get good leaves then it is worth trying this recipe because it is very very tasty. I have captured the image of leaves, which I have used. You can have a look on them.
