The season of arbi is in full swing and every vegetable shop in the market is loaded with this starchy vegetable. However, it hardly ends up in our shopping list or kitchen pantry. One of the probable reasons for the same could be our minimum knowledge about arbi. Also called taro root, this seasonal produce has a yam-like texture and brings both taste and a pool of health benefits to the plate. It has a low glycaemic index, zero fat and no cholesterol-content; meaning it is an excellent addition to our diet to combat diabetes, boost heart-health and shed extra kilos. Keeping this in mind, we decided to give arbi its fair share of culinary experimentation!
The soft and fluffy texture and mildly-sweet taste makes it a versatile vegetable in the world of gastronomy. From a simple gravy-based sabzi to a lip-smacking chaat– arbi can be whipped up into several delicious dishes.
We managed to get hold of some recipes, which will help you churn some yummy snacks in this rainy season. Read on.
