Dahi ki arbi-During summers we wish to eat something light and cool.,so I often make curries in which curd can be added.Taro root /arbi /colacasia is such a vegetable which can be cooked in a delicious curd gravy.

This dahi ki arbi is a light and flavourful curry and so easy to make .Addition of cloves ,ajwain,asafoetida and yogurt make it delicious and easy to digest.
How To Make Dahi ki Arbi
First you have wash and then boil and peel the arbi. Then slice it into medium thick roundels. Then you can either fry/ stir fry the sliced pieces or just add the boiled pieces without frying. Whisk the yogurt properly else it may curdle while boiling. Addition of 1 tsp refined flour is to avoid curdling of yogurt.Do stir it continuously till the curry start boiling.
Adjust the quantty of water according to the thickness you want in your curry . Some prefer it quite thick and some want to have thinner curry so adjust accordingly. This dahi ki arbi goes well with any Indian bread i.e- roti ,poori paratha or rice
