Assamese Style Colocasia Chutney / কচুথুৰ, মধুসোলেং আৰু বিলাহীৰ চাটনি

Colocasia chutney or kosuthurir chutney is a very delicious chutney recipe of Assamese cuisine.  Colocasia is a tropical plant found in Assam. It has many varieties. Here in this recipe I'm using small colocasia plant's leaves with stems. This chutney is sour in taste. Here in this recipe I'm using modhuxulung leaves and tomato as souring agent. You can use any other souring agent of your choice.
