Kochu/tar root is used in many recipes. This recipe is the quickest and easiest one you can make with Kochu/Taro Root. Even though this is extremely simple to make, don’t underestimate the taste. Crispy on the outside, soft in the inside, this is a perfect starter for a homemade meal. This is a vegetarian/vegan recipe.
Unlike other vegetables this is not made from the fresh vegetable. Don’t worry, I’m not trying to give you stomach infection either! Whenever taro Root is bought to our home, mom saves up a small piece of the root and dries it up in the sun for 2-3 days, then uses the middle part of the piece for making fritters. The outer layer gets darkened and is discarded. You might feel some discomfort in your throat if you consume Kochu/ Taro Root not properly processed/cooked, as it has needle like microscopic elements (Calcium Oxalet) in it.
