Ingredients
  Colocasia leaves 48
  Gram flour 750 Gram
  Onions 4 Large, finely chopped
  Fresh coriander 2 Bunch (200 gm), finely chopped
  Garlic pod 1 Large
  Kashmiri chillies 16
  Green chillies 15
  Cumin seeds 1 Tablespoon
  Dhansakh masala 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Chilli powder 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Turmeric powder 12 Tablespoon
  Tamarind pulp 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Grated jaggery 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Sesame oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)
Directions

Cut the stems of the colocasia leaves, wash and dry them with a soft muslin cloth.
Grind the garlic, cumin, red and green chillies and powdered spices in a quarter cup of vinegar. Chop onions and coriander finely. Mix grated jaggery and tamarind pulp.
Sieve the flour in a large thali, add salt and the ground masala, jaggery and tamarind pulp and mix well together. Add one cup of water and mix dough well. Cover and allow to stand for two hours.
After two hours, mix the chopped onion and coriander in the gram flour. Place a huge double length newspaper on the floor or table. Weigh it down at the four corners. Place a large leaf upside down on it, take a handful of the batter and apply on the leaf. Place another leaf so that it overlaps one side of the first one and apply batter on it. Keep arranging the leaves in such a manner that you have a large square of batter filled leaves. Fold all four sides slightly inwards and roll neatly. Tie with soft white string. You should get six to eight such rolls.
Heat two cups sesame oil in a heavy based pan and fry the rolls gently on all sides. Add one cup water and allow to simmer. Cover the vessel tightly so that the rolls cook in the steam. Turn over the rolls and add more water if you feel necessary and keep on the stove till cooked. Cool and store in plastic bags and refrigerate.
When needed, cut into slices and fry in hot oil and temper with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and red chillies. Serve with sour lime wedges.
