Taro Root in Curd Gravy - Arbi Masala

Some vegetables don't get the recognition which they deserve. We just stick to some vegetables and ignore some. I think Arbi which is known as Taro root in English comes in that category. People make chips of it but when it comes to making it fancier, we don't think about it.  Well nothing wrong in chips also, when it comes to healthier options, Arbi chips are much better than potato chips. It has 30% less fat and more fiber than potatoes. If you have a sufficient level of fiber which taro root provides, then you can manage your GI Level and lower your chances of developing diabetes. If you have diabetes then fiber-rich foods like taro root can help prevent the spikes and plunges in blood sugar that can be so dangerous.
