Taro Root (Arbi) Patties

I tasted taro root for the first time at a friend’s place two years ago. She had made taro patties with minimum spices, but they still tasted good. Since then I have been cooking it the same way. Be aware, if you like taro root, you will want more and more if this patties:).

Here are the ingredients:
6-7 pieces of Small Taro Roots
Salt to taste
1 Teaspoon Crushed Black Pepper (optional)
2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Chaat Masala
1 Teaspoon Oil

Wash the roots thoroughly and put them in a container. Put the container in the pressure cooker and cook for 5 whistles. Let it cool.
Once the taro roots have cooled down to touch, peel them. Press them gently in between the palms of your hands to make a flat patty. If need cut them in two pieces before making small patties.
Heat up the oil on a griddle or a non stick pan. Once it is hot, arrange the patties on the griddle. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and chaat masala on the patties. Cook them on medium heat for about 2 minutes, or until the underside turns golden brown. Flip the patties gently. Now sprinkle the salt, pepper and chaat masala on the cooked side. Let the underside cook for another two minutes to get golden brown color.
Take off of the stove and squeeze a fresh lemon over them or brush some lemon juice on the patties. Garnish with chopped coriander. I can’t stop eating them as soon as they are off of the griddle; therefore I never get to the garnishing stage:).
