Seppankizhangu Varuval | Crispy Arbi Fry | Chamagadda Talimpu | Arbi Roast


Arbi Roast / Chamadumpa Vepudu is a stir-fry dish from South India.  I consider arbi, also known as colocasia or taro root, to be one of the tastiest vegetable (of course next to Potato).  It tastes best when deep fried, but those who don't prefer deep fried, can try this version.  Here Arbi is boiled, peeled and cut into circles and pan fried with spices.  I like both the versions as both taste equally good.  Sambar with Seppakizhangu Fry is one of the most amazing combos.

This no onion no garlic arbi recipe is quite easy to prepare.  If you are looking for more stir-fry dishes, do check these out:  Raw Banana Stir Fry, broad bean stir fry, banana stem stir fry, grated carrot stir fry.

Beetroot Stir Fry | Beetroot Poriyal | Beetroot Fry Andhra Style


Beetroot is one of the wonder veggies that is packed with nutrients and is a natural blood purifier.  Normally kids don't prefer it.  So it is a task for mummies to make sure they take it at least once a week.  There are quite a few dishes where we can use beetroot like curry, stir fry, salad, kootu, sambar, chutney or even as a stuffing in parathas.

I am presenting here one such dish, beetroot stir-fry with coconut.

Beetroot Stir Fry or Beetroot Vepudu is a delicious, simple and healthy stir-fry that tastes best with sambar or rasam. Can be had with roti too.   It is easy to prepare and doesn't require too many ingredients.  Make sure to include this healthy beetroot sabzi in your weekly menu..

Raw Banana Fry or Vazhakkai Fry is a traditional poriyal or side dish from South India.   Raw banana is one of those vegetables (apart from potato, of course) which tastes awesome when stir fried. Unlike other stir fries, aratikaya vepudu cooks real fast.  This vazhakkai curry tastes awesome with sambar or rasam and goes well most of the rice varieties too.
