Is that bowl enough to tempt you to eat arbi?? Or do i need to also tell you that this is not fried! Good enough? 🙂
Okay so let me tell you this is one of my favourite snacks to hog onto, a bowlful. There are so many of us who are crazy about french fries, right? But then those fried calories often turn down your craving, so why not make this instead. Arbi or Taro root is super healthy and has some amazing nutrional values too.
I know you’re going to thank me later. 😉

Take a wok, heat oil and add rai, jeera, hing & ajwain. Add arbi and stir. Do not cover the wok, let the flame swing between medium to high. Roast it well, almost like shallow fried so that it is cooked well inside and remains crispy outside.Now add all the spices, salt, haldi powder, red chilli powder and dhaniya powder. Give it a quick stir. Do not let it stick to the bottom. When cooked well, add lemon juice. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve. Yummy snack is ready to be savoured.

Notes :

Don’t forget to apply oil before peeling and cutting arbi as it might cause itching. You may use regular vegetable oil.
If you feel the need add a tbsp oil more but do not let your spices burn while cooking.

Give it a try! Awaiting feedback. 🙂

Happy cooking. ❤
