  • 250 gm Colocasia/ Arbi/Taro root
  • 1 tsp Refined flour/ maida
  • 3/4 cup Yogurt
  • 1.5 glass Water
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger/ Adrak chopped
  • 2 Green chili/ Hari mirch chopped
  • 1/3 tsp Black salt/ Kala namak
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric/ Haldi
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder
  • 1.5 tsp Lemon juice
  • pinch Garam masala
  • 3 tbsp fresh coriander

Tempering/ Tadka

    • 2 tsp Cooking oil
    • 1 tsp Carom seeds/ ajwain
    • 1/4 tsp Asafoetida
    • 2 cloves


    • Wash and pressure cook arbi for 2-3 whistles(depending on the size and quality of arbi) till cooked completely.OR wash and microwave for approx. 15 minutes
    • Peel off the skin and slice into medium thick roundels.
    • Heat oil in a pan and deep fry these slices on high heat till golden in colour. OR you can just use sliced arbi without frying .frying is done to reduce the sliminess of arbi.but I prefer to use arbi without frying.
    • Mix flour into curd and mix well (flour is added into curd to reduce the chances of curdling )then add 1.5 glass water and mix properly(A)
    • Heat oil in a pan and add carom seeds, asafoetida and cloves,when carom seeds become golden add chopped green chilies and chili powder
    • Immediately pour in the curd and water mixture(A) and stir
    • Add all the spices (except lemon juice) and chopped arbi slices.
      Mix and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, keep stirring, otherwise it may curdle.
    • Now add fresh coriander,garam masala and lemon juice.
    • Serve hot and enjoy with roti or rice


    1-you can also use this curry as a fasting food by just omitting black salt and
    turmeric and substitute chili powder with black pepper powder .
    2-Can replace colacosia with boiled potato or yam( jimikand/suran)and make dahi wala suran or aloo
    Serving suggestions-serve with roti ,parartha or any bread of your choice.
