My husband is such a fan of Arbi/colocasia root that I have to cook it once a week if I see it in the market. I only knew the arbi recipes that my mother and mother-in-law taught me. But, preparing it for almost every week in the same manner, was becoming a bit monotonous for me. So, I came up with this stir fry recipe that is a bit dry and goes really well wil flatbreads or can be had as a starter.

Some Expert Tips For Preparing Sukhe Arbi

 

  • Apply some oil to your fingers and peel while peeling the arbi.
  • Fry the spice powders on the lowest possible heat. You can turn off the gas if necessary. Spice powders, particularly chili powder, tend to burn quickly on high heat.
  • Sukhi arbi can also be served as a snack or as an appetizer.
  • If making for fasting, leave out the asafoetida (hing).
