Arbi Curry Recipe | Arbi Masala Recipe | Punjabi Arbi Masala

This arbi curry is a light North Indian curry that usually has some Saawn ke chawal / tiny round rice like millet specially meant for fasting or with Kuttu ki roti – rotis made from buckwheat flour.

But I have had it with Indian Roti flatbreads like whole wheat flour roti, bajra ka rota, and chapati too. So you can make this curry thick or thin depending on your preference. This is a very easy recipe to make this arbi curry in the pressure cooker for lunch boxes because you just need to give the cooker one whistle for the curry if you are going to have it with chapati.

Taro root in English, arbi in Hindi, chamadumpa in Telugu, this vegetable is known by various other names in different languages.

Dietary fiber and good carbohydrates in tara root contribute to healthy weight loss and digestive system function. Additionally, it contains high levels of vitamins C, B6, and E, which strengthen the immune system and neutralize free radicals.

Arbi, when cooked, steamed, or boiled, has a sweet and nutty taste. And when it gets cooked in a spicy curry, you will have a lip-smacking dish.

The vegetable has to be boiled before making any curry with arbi (taro root). So before you make this Arbi Curry recipe, please boil the taro root first by either steaming or pressure cooking for at least 5-6 whistles depending on the size of your vegetable.

If you have this with Kuttu ki roti, just add the boiled arbi when you temper the curry in oil and follow the same procedure given below for making this curry.

And if you are going to have it with some flatbreads like chapati, roti, or paratha, then add the boiled arbi cubes to the tempering along with ginger and saute till they are light browned. Then follow the same procedure given below for making this curry.

You can also use this recipe as a side dish for rice or rotis like the main course meal. This is a healthy vegan, gluten-free recipe and no onion, no garlic recipe suitable for kids’ lunch box recipes. So here goes the simple, quick, and easy recipe for North Indian vegan arbi curry.

You can also have it with other fasting recipes like Rajgira paratha, Singhare ki poori, or Rajgire ki poori.
