DRY TARO CURRY (SIVAPAN KIZHANGU KAI)

I am here again with a dry curry recipe which is another favourite choice of my husband. In Hindi you can call it is as arubi fry. In Tamil, it is called as sivapan kizhangu kai.It is very easy to make and very delicious in taste.


I would recommend for the people who are overweight or trying to reduce weight please avoid eating this vegetable very frequently because this is to be considered as very high calorie vegetables.

So here is recipe for it

Curry leaves-4-5

Asafoetida-a pinch

Method

• Boil the washed taro with its jacket in sufficient water in wide mouth pan till it becomes tender.

MMM love this one, but mine never comes out as brown/crispy. Maybe I don't have enough patience.
