Sambar Arbi Roast | Roasted Taro Root in Sambar Powder

There is no rule in cooking, yes there are rules in baking but cooking on gas or oven, its fun. You can take your ingredients, spices and voila , your dish is done. Same thing happens to me with this one too. I made Chips out of Arbi but wanted to make something new, so instead of using it to making chips I made it in sambar powder and result was delicious. You can use potatoes , sweet potatoes, raw bananas, turnips or any root vegetables for this dish. There is no hard and fast rule, just keep the masala same and change the vegetable of your family favorite and dish is done.
