Taro root Fry

This was the first time I tried my hand on Taro Root..I got this from the grocery store and was wondering what to cook with it..Then decided to prepare something crispy and hot..I prepared this and served it with was a very good combination..It can also be had as a snack..Here are some Wiki facts about Taro Root..


Taro root - 5 to 6 depending on their size
Chilli powder - 2 teaspoons
Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon
Oil for frying
Salt to taste



Wash the taro roots well to remove the soil and dirt..Boil them with enough water for about ten minutes..Do not over boil them for it will turn mushy..
Allow them to cool and remove the skin..I used the peeler to remove the skin..
Then slice them into round pieces of about 1 cm thick..If it is too thin again it might turn mushy..
Take one or two teaspoons of oil in a plate and mix salt,chilli and turmeric powder together..Then coat the sliced taro roots with this mixture on both sides..
Then in a skillet take some oil and fry them for about 5 minutes until they turn crispy and golden..Serve hot..
