Colocasia (arbi) Vadas

This is an old recipe I found. Tastes interesting.  You’ll need:

  • 250gms Colocasia (arbi)
  • 1/2 Cup Wheat flour
  • 1 pinch asafoetida (hing)
  • Salt and chilli powder to taste
  • Oil for frying


  1. Clean the colocasia, boil, remove skin and mash.
  2. Add salt, chilli powder and asafoetida.
  3. Add the wheat flour a little at a time, till you have a stiff dough.
  4. Shape into small vadas (dumplings) and fry.
