Arbi Roast (Maami's Corner)
Arbi or colocassia or chembu is a very tasteless tuber, which is generally boiled & served with some spicy chutney. I’ve tried to combine the 2 to get this lovely roast.
With very little oil & lots of patience, you can do this in a non stick pan.
Arbi: 250 g
Red chilli powder: 2 tsps
Turmeric powder: 1/4tsp
Pepper powder: 1/2tsp
Garlic: 1tsp ground fine
Lime juice: 2 tsps
Oil: 2 tsps
Salt to taste
Choose small arbi, wash & boil them with skin.
When done, peel & crush between your palms slightly, to enable the masala to soak in.
Mix all spices with lime juice & salt. Apply all over the arbi. Keep for a while.
In a non stick pan, heat oil, place the masala coated arbis, cook on slow flame till well browned. Serve with rice.
