 Arbi is also called Eddo, taro and Colocasia. Eddo is a edible starchy tuberous root of taro plants which has giant green leaves. The green leaves are also used in cooking.It looks somewhat similar to potatoes and it has lots of starch in it.

Arbi/Eddo can be used to make curries, stir fry, similar to those of potatoes dishes.For preparing sabzi with this you have to  rub your hands with some oil and then discard the outer skin.  Because after it gets peeled, it releases some juice which might irriate your skin.

This recipe is my mom’s recipe. She usually boil the eddo and then remove the skin and cook in masala.

Arbi ki sabzi

Arbi is also called eddo, taro and the Binomial name for this is Colocasia esculenta. It looks somewhat similar to potatoes and it has lots of starch in it. For preparing sabzi with this we discard the outer skin while doing that just rub your hands with mustard oil or coconut oil first so that you do not get the itching. It really has unique flavor which is just awesome, sometimes after cooking the dish I just eat like that without any bread. So, here goes the recipe:
