Arbi Tandoori#SundayFunday

What is Arbi? Arbi is Taro root / Colocasia plant root. Arbi or Arvi as some call it here has many benefits. It's a fiber-rich food. It's dietary fiber helps to maintain the blood sugar level and potassium in it helps in heart health. Hence it is helpful in diabetes management. Helps to improve digestive health. Arbi, being rich in fiber content makes your stomach feel fuller for longer hours and reduces the number of calories intake throughout the day. 
Since October is National Cookbook Month, we are sharing recipes from cookbook for Sunday Funday today. My recipe is taken from Tandoori Cooking @ Home by Sanjeev Kapoor.

  1. What an interesting dish. I don't know if we have access to Arbi here!

  2. This simple arbi tandoori looks so tempting. Quite different as a starter dish. Love some of Sanjeev Kapoor's recipes.
