Alocasia Odora also called Night-scented Lily or Giant Upright Elephant Ear is a flowering plant native to Asia. It is commonly known in Manipur as Yendem. In Vietnamese it is known as Bac Ha or Doc Mung; in Lao the plant known as thon toon, the stalk known as Khan Toon. Its stems are used as a green vegetable in the cuisines of Southeast Asia, and often used to flavor soups or stir fried dishes. It is used in Manipuri cuisine in many ways.
The stem is used in Kangsoi (Stew) and Eromba (Chutney), also adds it to Hawai Thongba (lentils) and it was usually a way of enticing to eat lentils. A delicious way of preparing Yendem is with small reddish Ngamu (Lata fish) Orngasang. It is called Kochur Loti in Bengali and is cooked with Ilish Macher Matha (hilsa head).
