Chembu/ Arbi vevichathu


A popular dish from Kerala , I used to love this so much as a kid . My mom prepares this from the home grown chembu / taro and usually in the evening as a snack.

Ingredients:
Chembu/Arbi - 1/2 kg
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Greenchillies - 3- 5 nos
Shallots -1 or 2
Turmeric powder - 1/4  tsp
Cumin seeds - a pinch
Garlic - 2 cloves
Salt to taste
Coconut oil
Method :-
Clean and cut the chembu into small pieces
Heat a vessel and boil water with salt.Cook the chembu pieces in boiling water,till they are well cooked(it should be cooked in such a way that it is easy to mash) . Drain and keep aside
Grind all the remaining ingredients to make a paste
When the arbi is done ,drain the excess water and mix it well with the coconut paste
Add salt to taste....combine it well so that all the arbi pieces have mashed well
Serve Hot drizzled with coconut oil
Goes well with Beef curry ,Meen curry,or chutney
