Arbi is also known as Colocasia root. Arbi is one of my favourite sabji. I use to make it in so many ways like.. sukhi arbi, gravy arbi, kurkuri arbi etc. Arbi can be consumed as a sabji with roti, paratha or puri. As well as it can be served as a starter or snack. But today i am sharing my recipe of sukhi arbi. I learnt it from my mamma.
If you want to have some change in your daily food. Then try arbi i am sure you will love it. But always make sure that before peeling off arbi do massage your hands and finger tips with some oil. Otherwise it will give itching sensation.
