A quick, easy and yummy recipe that does not require too many ingredients.



  • 500gms Arbi/Taro root – boiled and peeled
  • 1 Onion – medium size roughly chopped
  • 2 Tomato – medium size roughly chopped
  • 8 Garlic flakes
  • 1 inch Ginger
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Chili powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander/Dhania powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Mustard oil
  • ½ bowl Fresh Coriander


  1. In a mixer grinder add onion, tomato, ginger and garlic and grind to a fine paste.
  2. Now heat a kadai add the ground ingredients.
  3. Now one by one add all the dry ingredients like salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, chili powder and mix well so that it all incorporates well.
  4. Cook on low heat till the oil separates out, which will take about 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Now add the garam masala and mix.
  6. Add the boiled arbi and mix well. Add half cup water and fresh coriander.
  7. Simmer it on low heat for 3 to 5 minutes.


Boil the arbi in water in an open vessel at least 10 to 12 minutes till tender. If you are boiling the arbi in a pressure cooker add only 1 cup of water and reduce the heat after the first whistle. It does not take more than 5 to 6 minutes for the arbi to cook.
Generally, arbi is deep fried and then added to the gravy but I have tried a healthier version, I have not deep fried the arbi after boiling it and trust me it tastes equally good.
