Arbi ki Sookhi Sabji / Taro Root Fry

Taro Root also known as Arbi in hindi is a root vegetable . The leaves are also eaten as vegetable and many delicacies are prepared with it. However, they have a itchy feeling if not cooked carefully. Both root vegetable and vegetables need to be boiled/steamed in water so that it becomes inedible. It is often cooked like potato but has more nutritional value.
