We can make a lot of variety dishes or curries by Colocasia at home. It is completely natural vegetable and usually available in houses. Fried dishes are our favourite snacks and its popularity is increasing day by day. Different types of fried items or snacks are available in shops and this area will be crowded always that is showing its demand. But we can make these items very easily by using simple methods.
In this recipe, I am showing a very good combination of fried colocasia and tomato sauce which is usually served as snack. It is very simple and easy to make at home. I haven't used any artificial colour or essence to make tomato sauce and fried colocasia so that it won't affect to health. Tomato sauce is very spicy less so that everyone will enjoy with this combination including children. It has a great mixed taste such as sweet, spicy sour and salt. We can use any types of fried items with this tomato sauce. We will get very special mixed taste of crispiness and sauce flavour while we having it together. Garlic and Cinnamon are the main flavours of tomato sauce.We can make fried colocasia without turmeric powder also. We can get it from some restaurants in Kerala but completely it is a homemade recipe.
