The only time I got to see this when my best friend opens her lunch box during the lunch break and as we shared our food, I happened to taste this and I experienced a colocasia revelation! So tasty, soft in the center with crispy crust edges, dusted with red chilli powder and salt.... Mmmm... Just yumm.. It tastes yummy with dal rice.. Thanks to my bestie 😍.. I hope you will try this recipe and share your feedback in the comments section below. So, shall we begin the recipe?

Notes : 

1. If you don't want to switch off the flame and do the waiting at step 5, you could add your spices after adding the arbi to the tadka pan.. I tried the waiting way today. 
2. Some also add coriander powder, but today, I kept it simple. 
3. When it comes to deep frying use proper fats. Prefer unrefined oils. Today, I've used unrefined peanut oil. 

Enjoy!
