Crispy, fried, arbi, what’s not to love about the description, and that’s arbi/kachalu/taro/colocasia tuk for you.

Arbi Tuk/tukk is a popular Sindhi crispy fried and spiced snack. It is prepared by frying Arbi 2 times the way I have shared the recipe of Sindhi aloo tuk.

This crispy arbi tuk goes very well as side dish with dal-rice, Sindhi kadhi or Alu matar tamatar sabzi.

So here I am sharing it with all of you. Do give it a try and let me know by leaving few words in the comments section, how it turned out for you.

Let’s get started…..

 

 

Step by step instructions and pictorial presentation to make Sindhi Arbi tuk | Kachalu tuk | Fried colocasia

 

Wash the Arbi/kachalu very well under running water. Once the water runs clear, drain it and pressure cook it with 1 spoon of salt upto 2 whistles.

Once cooled peel the outer skin carefully. Cut the boiled arbi in half or your may keep it whole. I prefer to make halves as it gets ready quickly.

After that fry all the pieces in hot oil once. This step needs to be done quickly as we don’t need to fry it for long time.

Drain it on tissue paper. Once cooled a bit, press all the arbi pieces gently with your palm or potato masher. Take care not to break them.

Drop them again in the hot oil and fry until it turns crispy and golden brown.
Drain the arbi/kachalu on a plate.

Now mix all the dry spices mentioned above, in a bowl. Sprinkle the masalas over fried arbi and toss well.

Serve immediately.

 

Notes

1. Make the spice mix ready while frying arbi and sprinkle it immediately after taking out kachalu from the hot oil.

It will help to stick the spices better on fried arbi.

2. If you want to serve arbi later, you can fry them once, smash and keep.

Once ready to serve, fry them again in hot oil until crisp, sprinkle spices and serve hot.
