I've discovered my love for the gardens & plants just a year ago, and now it become a passion for me. Still a beginner, learning new things everyday.

Yummy. What is this snack called Shaz? We have something similar here in Trinidad made by persons of East Indian descent. Called saheena.

Thanks Shaz. Looks great. Our saheena is probably a sibling of aloowadi. The more modern (probably easier) way of making saheenas looks like a ball with more batter than #dasheen leaves as we call it. Love this way though. Never seen it made before, just buy it.

On another note, persons of Indian descent call potato aloo. Is that the name there? I see this dish is called aloowadi so I was wondering. So an aloo pie is a fried flour pastry with crushed seasoned potato filling. Popular quick breakfast purchase.

@novicegardenlover Yes, patato is called aloo, but its also used to refer these leaves, also its an old n triditional snack. As a multilingual country we have different names from same vegitable. At the end whatever u call it, its just taste matters. 😋😋😋

Fast becoming one of my fav plants! Trying to keep one over winter here indoors as too cold outside in uk at the moment. Do you cook the leaves or the root?

@richard.spicer.7906 We mostly use the leafs to cook a tasty fried snack like 👉 https://youtu.be/1_0VpRcMg3w. And sometimes we use the root tubers also.

Yes @richard.spicer.7906 It's a vary tasty snack. Just make sure that it's a burgundy or brown stem plant. Otherwise it will cause itching in throat.😀
