Dum Arbi- Stir fried Colocasia cooked in a tangy tomato and yogurt curry

Dum Arbi is a delicious rich curry made with colocasia/ taro roots. Arbi is a summer special vegetable and is available very easily and very reasonably priced during season.

Arbi is very good in fiber so excellent for the digestive system, very high in vitamin C and E ,both of which are anti-oxidants. Taro roots is gluten free and have zero cholesterol so a good vegetable for every one.

Taro root/Arbi is a tuber which is slightly slimy when boiled or steamed, so many avoid eating it because of this reason but it taste awesome if cooked perfectly. It is widely used in Northern and Southern part of India. The root and the leaves of arbi both are edible. An awesome snack is made with arbi leaves- Patra/alu vadi/pathrode which is first steamed and then stir fried, taste sweet and tangy.
