Seppankizhangu Varuval | Crispy Arbi Fry | Chamagadda Talimpu | Arbi Roast

Arbi Roast / Chamadumpa Vepudu is a stir-fry dish from South India.  I consider arbi, also known as colocasia or taro root, to be one of the tastiest vegetable (of course next to Potato).  It tastes best when deep fried, but those who don't prefer deep fried, can try this version.  Here Arbi is boiled, peeled and cut into circles and pan fried with spices.  I like both the versions as both taste equally good.  Sambar with Seppakizhangu Fry is one of the most amazing combos.

This no onion no garlic arbi recipe is quite easy to prepare.  If you are looking for more stir-fry dishes, do check these out:  Raw Banana Stir Fry, broad bean stir fry, banana stem stir fry, grated carrot stir fry.
