Pork with colocasia leaves (kosu xaak)


Colocasia is a tropical plant found in entire northeast India.  Its every part is edible.  Its leaves, stems, flower and roots.  But Some may not like it. And some may be allergic to it. There are many varieties of colocasia found in this region. In this Pork with colocasia leaves (kosu xaak) recipe  I am using small colocasia  plants' leaves with stems.

Boil colocasia leaves and throw the water before making any recipe in order to remove the oxalates that may cause irritation of the tounge.
