Pathrode Ghashi | Konkani Recipes

One thing I am yet to master from both my ammas is making good use of leftovers.I admire anyone who can turn a leftover dish into a new delicacy without turning up noses at the dining table.I mean,the maximum I do is to add leftover Dal into Sambhar or make Rasam out of it.Of course making Upma out of Idli and Bread does constitute as leftover cooking,doesn't it?

 Pathrode Ghashi
Pathrode/Pathrode is a routine dish that gets made in both homes.Usually a big batch is made depending on the availability of Taro leaves.Most of us at home like it fresh the most,steaming hot out of the Pedavan.After that comes the roasted version,thin slices are cut and roasted till crisp in tawa liberally topped with some coconut oil.If there is still some leftover,this ghashi is made.

No rocket science,this one too.A basic Coconut masala is made and slices of pathrode is added and simmered for a while.Served with rice it makes for a delicious meal.

  1. Pathrode curry is looking interesting.

  2. Yummmm Divya..long time since I had this.

  3. Yummy curry with the goodness of pathrode!

    Pathrode and related dishes are very much or uniquely konkani.. hadnt come across any other communities making this healthy dish.
    This curry is more like vadai curry the tamils make with leftover vadais :)

    1. @bharathy Vadai curry is not from left over vadais .. even i was thinking the same.. later i came to know its very different preparation from the same ingredients that we prepare for vadai !

  4. right from pathrode to preparation everything new to me !

  5. this looks super inviting Divya totally new to me

  6. Hi Divya.Nice to see your post again.You know my mom first tempers some mustard seeds,udad dal, methi seeds and some curry leaves and then adds the onions ,once they are brown adds the same above masala. That ghashi also tastes great.Try it some time and tell me whether you like it.

  7. Yumm..I love pathrado dunked in ghashi.. after seeing your post headed to Indian stores but the leaves were wilted.. so did not buy..Its been a long time since I made this ghashi..I make Pathrado often but ghashi I make it the way my MIL makes it. My mom does the way you do.. Looks delicious
