Taro is one of the healthy vegetable in all root vegetables. In my childhood days, when we are going to my aunt’s house, grandma used to prepare this tasty arbi fry. We all like very much. After marriage, I prepared this yummy fry and my husband likes a lot. For making this fry, first we have to boil the arbi(cheppangizhangu) in pressure cooker leaving one whistle before fry.
