known as Chama Dumpa in Telugu, Arbi in Hindi, Seppankizhangu or
Cheppankizhangu in Tamil and Chembu in Malayalam. In Indian, taro root
is a common vegetable served in many ways, such as deep fried in oil, or
cooked in a tamarind gravy with lots of Indian spices. I have already
posted a arbi fry recipe with
coconut and today’s recipe is another deep fried version. This tastes
particularly good with cooked rice with a dollop of ghee. You can also
serve with sambar rice, curd rice or any South Indian pulusu. If you are looking for more recipes, then do check this Recipe Index.
