Posted on


Some recipes are passed generation to generation.Todays dish was 
shared by my great grand mother in law to my MIL !! The beauty of this dish is the dip that perfectly compliments the flavor of the taro root. My MIL taught me this dish as it is one of my hubby’s favorite. And sure you would enjoy it too…

  • 1/2 kg taro root medium size
  • salt to taste
  • oil for deep fry

For dip

  • 1 inch ginger
  • 6 long red chillies
  • salt to taste

Wash taro in running water and pressure cook it with enough water and salt for 3 whistles and sim it on low flame for 3 minutes. Switch off the cooker and once it cools discard the water totally and peel the skin.Cut the in circles with a 1/2 cm thickness. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry them till they are crispy and golden brown.Serve immediately with the dip. It can also be served with rice.

Grind all the ingredients to a smooth paste for the dip, traditionally 
it is crushed in mortar and pestle.
Note: It is ideal to prepare the dip before the fry as you can serve the taro fry crispy with the dip.
