Taro root fry Process

Preparation method :

  1. Wash the taro and cook in a vessel filled with water, just enough to cover them fully.  Bring the water to a rolling boil; cook taro until it is ¾ done or approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Once done switch off the stove, drain the water, cool and peel the skin off.
  2. Cut them into quarter inch thick pieces and keep aside. Take a bowl and mix red chili powder, dhania powder, garam masala, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, rice flour and salt to form a thick paste. Apply this masala paste to both sides of the taro root and set aside.
  3. Finally heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the pieces for 4 to 5 minutes each side over medium flame or until it turns golden brown.. Repeat the process for the second batch with the remaining oil. It is a good side for sambar or curd rice.

Notes:

  • Taro root has got a tendency to turn very mushy when over cooked, so check it by inserting a knife to see if it can pass through easily.
