2 – It can also be used as a travel food as it stays fresh for 3-4 days.
3- Prick the taro properly so it will get cooked from inside and absorb the flavours . 4-try to choose medium size or small size arbi for making this.

Never had or seen this dish, very interesting arbi dish.
बस एक नाम व भाषा का चमत्कार!
अन्जना जी,आपके आजके व्यन्जन के शीर्षक 'घुंइये की सब्ज़ी' पढते ही पुरानी स्मृतियाँ जागृत हो गईं।
हमारे घर प्रतिदिन आनेवाली सब्जीवाली फूलकली,रसोई में मेरी माँ चूल्हे पर लोहे की कढाई में सब्जी पकाते हुई ,बर्तनों की खनक और साथ में भोजन-मसालों की सुगन्ध मन की आँखों के सामने साक्षात्कार हो गईं।
बैठी हूँ विदेश में परन्तु हृदय व आत्मिक रूप से मैं तो कभी भारत के बाहर कभी भी नही हूँ !
भाषा जीवन का एक ऐसा महत्त्वपूर्ण व मौलिक स्तम्ब है जो हमें अपनी माँ,मातृभूमि व अपनों से आजीवन जोड़े रखता है।
मैं भी उसी पुण्यभूमि उत्तर भारत की जन्मी हूँ जहां 'घुंइया' शब्द वात्सल्य जीवन से ही सुनने को आया।
स्मृतियाँ जागृत करवाने के लिए हार्दिक धन्यवाद!
इसीलिए तो कहा गया है-जननी जन्मभूमि सुखदायी!!!!!
@thank you sudha!as raw arbis are used to make this so they have to deep fried so they will get cooked from indside,if we shallow fry them then they may not get cooked from inside.
Thank you Anjana aunty for all the wonderful sattvik recipes, especially this one. I wish this post came in a little early, so we could have made it for Radharani yesterday for her pleasure!! One question though, do the arbis have to be deep fried or shallow fried?
