Taro root is a starchy root vegetable originally cultivated in Asia but now enjoyed around the world. Taro Root is an exceptionally healthy food, filled with numerous nutrients like vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and antioxidants. Therefore, it should be consumed.

Chatpati Arbi can be made with boiled arbi and raw peeled arbi both ways and both taste great but slight different. Today I am going to tell you the recipe that I made with the boiled arbi. It’s very easy to make and tastes delicious…

I too am not a great fan of arbi, but when I tried making arbi by this method not only me but whole family members loved it. It goes well with simple Dal Rice or even with Paratha or Puri.

Also, don’t forget to check one of my favourite Arbi snacks Arbi Paneer Tikka.
