Fiber contents help to improve the digestion process and carbohydrates help to gain weight. It is also the source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin B6. We can make a lot of different tasty dishes with this Colocasia and all dishes will be very tasty. 
Today I have made a tasty dish which is called as Colocasia masala in Coconut gravy. I made it first time but my mother was preparing this dish so many times in my house. But here I made it little bit different from that. I used roasted ingredients to make masala paste to get good taste. It is natural dish and excellent combination with Rice, Chapati, Appam and hot Rice. This is thick curry and I like to have this dish with hot Rice for lunch. This is spicy, healthy and traditional dish and it will give you  fresh and tasty experiences.
