Fish curry with colocasia(Kosu) and mustard plant(Horiyoh xaak)


Mustard plant (Horiyoh Xaak) is a green leafy vegetable grows in winter. Its taste is little bitter when cooked. But it consists many vitamins and minerals. So it's a good vegetable from health point of view.

Colocasia again a tropical plant found in Assam. Colocasia is also known as taro. As all the parts of a colocasia plant ia edible, I am using root part in this recipe. It's very tasty and healthy too and another speciality of Assamese cuisine.
