Arbi fry

Chaamagadda in telugu, Arbi in Hindi and taroroot in English is a very commonly available but seldom used vegetable.Arbi fry or chaamagadda vepudu is every andhraite’s favourite as obvious is the penchant for fry’s in Andhra homes.

The preparation time is 20 mins.

Serves 2


Arbi/Taro root/chaama gadda ½ kg
Refined cooking oil 1 cup
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Cumin Powder (jeera powder) 1 tsp
Salt to taste


Pressure cook the Arbi/chaamagadda. Usually we leave it for 3 whistles. With this done, leave the arbi to cool.

Once the arbi is cooled, peel the arbi and slice into round circles.

Now keep oil for heating. Once hot, deep fry the sliced Arbi and take them into a vessel.

Add 1 tsp red chilli powder and ½ tsp cumin powder (optional) and salt to taste. Mix so that all the fried arbi absorb the powders.

Crisp and spicy chaamagadda vepudu is ready.Serve hot with rice and a tsp of ghee.
