Arbi Fry

Arbi / Colocassia or Seppankizhangu is a starchy tuber similar to potato. It can be cooked in several different ways. Tastes best when roasted with several spice powders until crispy and served with some rice and dal. It can also be served with rotis and chapatis.

Ingredients

Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Cumin/Jeera powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice from 1 lemon
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 teaspoons

Directions

Boil the arbi in a pressure cooker for about one whistle. Peel the skin and cut each into quarters or into half inch thick pieces. Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Once the start spluttering, add the chopped srbi along with the spice powders and salt. Shallow fry for about ten minutes until the spice powders coat the arbi and turn them crispy and golden brown. Serve warm with rice or rotis.
