Kochur Loti Chingri Curry – Taro Stolon with Prawns


Bengali RecipesFishNon Vegetarian

Kochur Loti with Chingri is one of the most popular Bengali delicacy. I know it’s an off bit green vegetable and difficult to find, but you can also buy the frozen one from any supermarket. It’s a typical Bengali recipe, and I have added some new flavour to it by adding shredded coconut. We can cook this taro stolons in two or three different ways, but this one is my hubby’s personal favourite. This recipe is easy to prepare and yummy to eat.
