Share  ·   print   ·  

Recipe Arbi may be high on calories, but it always tastes great

This dish tastes best with rice or chapathi. Colocasia, being a tuber, is rich in carbohydrates and high on calories. It is also a rich source of fibre. Cabbage coupled with colocasia gives a twist to this dry gravy.
