i have always been a huge fan of patra recipes irrespective of the underneath leafy vegetables used in them. as matter of fact, i like the south indian variant or my hometown udupi special patrode compared to all the variants. basically the south indian is made with coconut masala as compared to the western india offerings. i personally feel the coconut masala adds more flavour and aroma to the leaves as compared to the besan flour. nevertheless, the technique and the style is very similar and hence carries the same taste compared to both the offerings. the added advantage of the besan flour is it can be used with any type of leafy vegetables and can be easily spread on top of any delicate leaves. therefore, i attempted the palak alu vadi with gram flour and used coconut as just toppings.
