Masala Arbi (Arvi/Colocasia) 【香辣芋艿 】



I was pretty surprised to see this small yam in India market when I lived there. I bought it to made yam rice but it didn't turn out to be the same like the normal yam will do.

I had this Arbi again at my mother in law's place later, it was made into Masala Arbi, it tasted really good and had since became one of my favorite foods.

芋艿在我家乡是中秋节煮了沾糖吃的,平时不怎么去做它,所以我一直以为它是中秋的应节食品而已。在印度居住时,第一次在菜市场看见它时我挺惊讶的,我还以为这东西只有中国人才有呢!

印度人做这个芋奶的方式跟我们完全不一样,他们把它做成香辣的菜肴,也很好吃喔!
