Kalo Luau Stew with Crispy Onions
This easy to prepare kalo luau stew uses our recipe-ready kalo and crispy onions coated with ‘ulu flour for a crunchy topping great for any savory dish!
Defrost frozen recipe-ready kalo and luau leaves (if store bought and frozen). Strain the luau leaf water and set aside for later.
Cut the onion into thin slices and coat evenly with ‘ulu flour.
Fry the onion in medium high heat until crispy and brown and set aside on a plate with a paper towel to drain off excess oil.
Cut the recipe-ready kalo into bite size pieces.
In a pot, combine coconut milk and kalo pieces and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes.
Add defrosted luau leaves to the pot and stir. Add the strained luau leaf water for a thicker consistency. Add salt to taste.
Serve in a bowl and top with crispy onions.
You can substitute the kalo with any other Hawai‘i grown staple such as ‘ulu, ‘uala and pala‘ai. Mahalo to @melinchawaii on IG for the recipe inspiration!
