Taro Root Fry

Taro Root Fry is a healthy version of making a fry. In this recipe I used very less oil and made a crispy fry out of the Taro root. My husband loves it a lot. This is simple to make yet tastes fabulous.

Serves – 2
Preparation time – 5 mins
Cooking time – 15 mins
Ingredients :

  • Taro Root (peel, wash and chop) – 1 heaping cup
  • Dry Shredded Coconut – 3 Tbsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Red Chilli Powder – to taste
  • Garlic – 2 Cloves
  • Turmeric Powder – 1/4 powder

Procedure :

Add chopped taro root into the microwave safe bowl, add in 2 Tbsp water and cover the bowl partially to microwave for 2 mins and then remove from the microwave to mix well then again cover partially and microwave for 2 more mins. Remove and set the bowl aside.

In a wide frying pan heat up the oil, add in the boiled taro root to the hot oil and mix well to keep them seperated from each other and they shouldn’t stick to one another. This way they will be nice and crispy

mean while blend garlic, coconut, red chilli powder, salt, turmeric powder and set aside. Add this to the cooked taro root after turning off the heat. Serve it with hot rice. it tastes really awesome.
