Arbi Curry or Taro root Curry is a traditional vegetarian curry recipe that I learnt from my mother. Since this is a standard curry recipe, you can replace Arbi with potatoes, peas or beetroots or even Drumsticks. Each curry has its own flavour and tastes delicious. Arbi Curry is a versatile curry that can be served with Idlis, dosas, Rice ChapathiWheat Dosas, or normal Roti/ chapathi.

I personally like to serve Arbi Curry with Roti or Chapathi. Here I have served Arbi curry with Beetroot roti/ Chapathi. Will share the recipe of making Beetroot roti in my next post. 

Also this traditional recipe of Arbi curry uses tamarind pulp. But my mom started using soya sauce in place of it and the curry tastes delicious. In case you wish to make a traditional Arbi curry, you can take a small ball of tamarind, extract its pulp and use in place of Soya sauce.

Now, lets move on to the recipe of making Arbi Curry/ Taro root curry.


20 small round Arbi washed, skin removed and soaked in water
3 tbsp oil
1 onion finely chopped
1 ½ tsp ginger garlic paste
3 tomatoes deseeded and pureed
2 and 1/2 tbsp coconut paste
3 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp chilli powder (or to taste)
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 bunch fresh mehti (fenugreek) leaves or 2 tsp kasuri methi (dry fenugreek leaves)
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
Handful of Coriander leaves


  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add onions and saute till onions turn golden and soft.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute till the raw smell goes. 
  • Then add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt. 
  • Mix well and add tomato paste and cook till oil starts separating.
  • Now add the Arbi, fenugreek leaves and mix well. 
  • Dissolve coconut paste in 2 cups of water and add to the cooker. 
  • Mix well and add coriander leaves. 
  • Now close the lid, and cook for 2 or 3 whistles. 
  • Once done, open the lid and add soya sauce and bring the gravy to a boil. Close a lid and cook in moderate flame for about 5 minutes. Check for taste, add salt or chilli powder if required.
  • Switch off the gas. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot.
