Steamed Colocasia Patties/Pathrode Serving Suggestion

Recently I posted the recipe for pathrode. Yesterday I prepared it again for dinner but served it differently with a simple ghasi/gravy. At home this is called "ghasintule pathrode" which means "patties dipped in coconut gravy". This is just a serving suggestion of pathrode. The only additional step is to prepare ghasi/coconut gravy. This surely is very unique and tasty. Definitely worth trying !

Ingredients for ghasi:
1 cup grated coconut
6-7 red chillies
1/2 teaspoon tamarind extract
2 teaspoon oil
1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
5-6 curry leaves
1/2 cup water

In a pan heat 1 teaspoon oil and fry fenugreek seeds for couple of minutes.
Make a fine paste of fried fenugreek seeds, grated coconut, red chillies and tamarind extract.
To the paste add 1/2 cup water, salt and bring it to boil.
In a skillet heat oil and add mustard seeds. When mustard seeds starts spluttering add curry leaves. 
Pour it on ghasi.

Serving pathrode:
Once you have steamed pathrode cut into desired sizes, place them in a bowl and pour ghasi on them. Leave it for 4-5 minutes before eating. Serve it with rice.

Serves: 3
Preparation Time: 35 mins (excludes pathrode preparation time)
