About Chatpata Arbi Masala Recipe

This is one of my versions of preparing boiled Arbi (Colocassia) stir fried with onion, ginger and garlic. It is a perfect side dish for chapattis or any rice-dal combo. This is a very quick and an easy recipe if you have the arbi already boiled and stored in the refrigerator. As the name implies, this dish is very spicy and tangy.
