Arbi (Arvi) Stir-Fry

Arum/Colocasia/Taro Root/Arvi/Arbi - 250 gms
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric/Haldi - 1/8 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Tamarind - small pebble size
Cayenne pepper/Red chilli powder - about 1 tsp
Grated Coconut - 1 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

1. Peel the arum root and dice it into bite sized pieces.  Apply few drops of oil to hands while cutting arum to avoid itching.
2. Cook the diced arum in about 2 cups water for about 5 minutes or till soft. Cooking time may vary.  Drain the water.
3. Heat about 2 tbsp oil in a pan/skillet. Add mustard seeds and asafoetida.  When mustard seeds pop, add cooked arum and tamarind.  Let the water evaporate.
4. Add salt, turmeric, cayenne pepper and stir till all the ingredients are mixed well.  Saute for a longer time with few more drops of oil to make arum crisp.
5. Garnish with grated coconut and serve as a side dish.
