Vrat Ke Arbi Sabzi | Navratri Vrat Recipe | Phalahari Tari Arbi (Taro) Sabzi

Phalahari Arbi Sabzi or Kochhai/Taro/Colocasia is delicious curry or sabzi made with arbi and this is suitable curry for Navratri fasting/vrat/upwas with no onion no garlic and everything that is not allowed in fasting.  We can make this curry not only during fasting but on normal days too just change sendha namak/rock salt with regular salt and enjoy this no onion no garlic curry with anything of choice.

This is one of the simple way of making arbi sabzi and we make this even when we don't fast just that I add little turmeric powder and use normal salt that's all and it goes well with steamed rice or roti, paratha on regular days.


If you think Arbi/taro will cause itchiness while eating you can pressure cook for 2 whistles or boil arbi first and then make the curry.   In that case add cooked arbi after tomato gets mashed and simmer for lesser time as arbi is already boiled, both way this curry taste yum.
