Taro stolon, commonly known as kochur loti in Bangladesh, is a common item in Bengali cuisine. Several exotic Bengali dishes are made with this scrumptious vegetable. One of the most common dishes is kochur loti with narikel and shorshe. This is a strongly flavoured curry made with taro stolon, coconut and mustard paste. Taro stolon curries are also cooked with shrimp and macher muro of different types of big fish such as Rui and Hilsha. Besides enhancing the taste of Bengali cuisine, taro stolon also plays a significant role in keeping us healthy. It is interesting to note that taro stolon contains more calories than potatoes; 100 grams of taro stolon can provide up to 112 calories. Their calorie value is largely derived from complex carbohydrates namely, amylose and amylopectin. Their protein levels can be compared to other tropical food sources such as yam, cassava, potato, plantain, etc.  However, they are a minor source of fat and protein compared to cereals and pulses. Taro stolon is one of the finest sources of dietary fibre; 100g flesh provides 4.1g or 11 percent of the daily requirements of dietary fibre, thus playing a vital role in protecting the digestive system. Along with slow digesting complex carbohydrates, the presence of adequate amounts of fibre in the vegetable helps maintain a steady rise in blood sugar levels. Taro stolon can also help reduce high blood pressure. Moreover, it protects the skin, prevents different types of cancer, increases blood circulation, prevents heart diseases, improves vision, boosts the immune system, and strengthens muscle and nerves. It also prevents diarrhoea, cramping, constipation, bloating, excess gas, and improves the overall health of the body.
