Chembu/Arbi Fry


Chembu/Arbi Fry

 Here is a delicious fry with arbi/chembu/colocasia and is a great side dish with rice.It is very common in Kerala and is  grown in plenty in the backyard garden in almost every  home. There are a variety of dishes using chembu. But I like it best in sambar or simply boiled chembu with chamanthy. This fry is simple and spicy and is crispy in the outside and is now a family favorite.

 Ingredients
Chembu/colocasia- 1/2 pound
chopped ginger- 1 tsp
Cumin- a pinch
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/3 tsp
Coriander powder- 3/4 tsp
Garam masala- 1/3 tsp
Chat masala- 1/3 tsp(optional)
salt to taste
oil for frying


Wash and clean arbi and add to boiling water and cook till soft. Arbi should be completely immersed in water. Allow to cool down and peel off the skin and slice into thin pieces.
Heat 3 tsp of oil in a frying pan and add cumin and sliced ginger. Fry till there is a nice aroma . Add turmeric powder and stir till the raw flavor disappears . Layer the arbi and allow it to brown up on one side and turn it over and fry the other side. Add all the spice powders and salt and saute it till it gets coated evenly. Close lid and cook for two minute so that the masalas gets cooked. Take off the lid and fry on both sides for one more minute. Serve with rice and rasam

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
