Rikwach Recipe | Spicy Fried Colocasia Leaf Pakora

Rikwach is a an innovative dish which makes an excellent use of Colocasia leaf as a base in a Pakora like snack. Colocasia leaves are  heart shaped leaves and can easily be found at vegetable market. If you haven’t tried anything like that, just think of pakoras but 10 times tastier and call it Patora.
