Chamadumpa pulusu / Taro Roots

Chamadumpa/Taro roots is my cousins brother and sisters favourite veggie. They are very fond of Chamadumpa fry. They used to live in Chennai at that time.Once when we( me and my younger brother) visited them for summer holidays. My pinni made Chamadumpa fry and served us all. Suddenly these two started fighting for more curry. As we are not much used to that curry at that time, ended up sharing our part of the curry to them equally. This memory brings back a smile on my face..:)


Chamadumpa/Taro roots 6
Onion 1 (finely chopped)
green chilli 2
Red Chilli powder 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tbsp
Tamarind juice 2 tbsp
Ginger Garlic paste 1/2 tbsp
Corriander powder 1/2 tbsp
