Staying home alone, dinner mostly tend to be a simple quick fix affair. But sometimes I feel like experimenting with something new and treat myself to that. Today is one such day. I checked what all I had in my kitchen and I remembered getting few Arbi or Taro Root (Colocassia) yesterday. So be it. I will try and make something with Arbi which I have not made before. Google Maharaj to rescue to and I zeroed upon Arbi with curd. The other day I tried my luck in Dahiwali Bhindi which turned out quite well. I think I still have a little hangover of that!
Little piece of Ginger
¼ Tea spoon of Coriander powder
Oil to fry
Salt as per taste
Chopped coriander leaves to garnish

The Process ::
Wash the Arbis thoroughly and boil in the pressure cooker to one whistle. Once the Arbis are cooled, peel them and cut into pieces. Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the pieces. Take out from oil and keep aside.Now cut the tomato into small pieces, add the green chilies and the piece of ginger and make a smooth paste in the mixture by adding little water. Whisk the curd and keep it ready.

Heat 2 tea spoon of oil and add the hing and the cumin seeds. When the cumin seeds splutter add turmeric powder, coriander powder , the tomato – chili - ginger paste and fry until oil is separated. Add the Arbi pieces into the spicy mix now. Cook with the lid for 5 minutes. Slowly pour the curd and gently mix everything. At this point I had switched off the gas and closed the lid.
