Taro Root Raitha /ಕೆಸುವಿನಗಡ್ಡೆ ಮೊಸರು ಬಜ್ಜಿ / ಹಸಿ

As we all know Taro Root or Kesuvina gadde(ಕೆಸುವಿನಗಡ್ಡೆ) is a root vegetable which can be used in
varieties of dishes. Some of the varieties of Toro roots grow back-home cause itchiness when you touch them so there is a practice of cooking them in Tamarind water and thats the only solution as I know, there could be other ways too not sure. I think the variety which we get here in Toronto are not itchy, but to be on the safer side I cook them in Tamarind water.
As you have seen I love to share quick, easy yet delicious recipes, it is one of them!!. This is one of the fine havyaka recipes handed down from my Mom.  Give it a try and let me know how it turned out. I m sure you will love it. Enjoy.


Preparation time : 20-25 min

  • 2 meduim size Taro Roots
  • 1/2 Lemon size Tamarind
  • 2 tbsp grated Coconut
  • 1 small Onion Chopped

  • salt to taste

For tempering
  • 1 tsp cooking Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seed
  • 2 broken Red chillies



Method:

  • Pressure cook the Taro roots with Tamarind. 1 whistle should be enough. If you dont want to pressure it takes about 30-40 min to get soften.
