Sukhi arbi / Dry arbi or Indian Colocasia Recipe is one of the best option for eating during fasting days. It’s a dry Indian Vegetable Recipe, cooked in mild spices. We are very fond of sukhi arbi and I generally accompany my sukhi arbi with dal and rice, but sometimes it is relished with chapati as well.┬áStir-Fry Arbi (Taro Root) is mildly spiced up with a light and crunchy taste of spices and makes a great side dish or also can be served as an appetizer.

Arbi masala is just a simply mixture of flavorful Indian herbs and few spices. Today I’m boiling my arbi, but sometimes I warm it in microwave just to make it tender. Before cooking arbi in spices and masalas, it is very important to make it either warmed, or boiled. Let’s see how to make this simple but very tasty arbi recipe step by step.
