What Is Arbi

Arbi is also called colocasia in English. Arbi is found all over the world and is a very common vegetable in India. It is cheap and can be used in many recipes. It grows below the ground like potato. Though this vegetable is never liked by children. I too never liked it when I was kid but as I grow up i can see how tasty it can be and how many ways we can cook it. We can eat it bolied, we can eat it fried, mashed, roasted. The list is endless. In this recipe we are going to fry the Arbi. It becomes real crisp and tasty. It is eaten with roti but can be eaten with naan too. Easy to cook and healthy to eat.

      I am sure you can find it easily there. It is grown below the ground like potato. Not everyone relish it much. Kids surely do not relish them much.. unless u fry them like French fingers.

      I had no idea what Arbi was so did a little search and in this part of the world it is known as taro root. It is grown in Hawaii and is cooked and mashed into what they call poi. Apparently this cannot be eaten raw as it is quite bitter when raw. Your recipe sounds delicious. Will have to see if they sell taro root over here. Voted up and interesting. I am enjoying hearing about foods from your part of the world. Thanks! Wish I could reach into the computer and sample one of those pieces of seasoned and fried Arbi. :)
