  Asafoetida 4 Pinch
  Chili powder 3 Teaspoon
  Cumin seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Finely chopped coriander leaves 1 Tablespoon
  Finely grated coconut 1 Tablespoon
  Gram flour 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Besan)
  Ground cumin seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Colocasia leaves 20 Large (Patra Leaves)

  Oil 1 Tablespoon
  Powdered sugar 3 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Sesame seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Tamarind extract 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (May Use Juice)
  Turmeric powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

First wash the patra leaves and wipe them clean.
Use a pair of scissors to cut the thick veins of the leaves.
Then use a rolling pin to roll them lightly and keep them aside for sometime.
Blend all the ingredients for preparation properly so that the mixture becomes a thick paste.
Take a leaf and place it on a flat surface with its reverse side facing up.
Next take a small amount of the thick paste and apply it all over the leaf surface, thinly and uniformly.
Put another leaf over it and repeat the process.
In this manner, make a set of 3 to 4 layered leaves, the uppermost layer being that of paste.
