Arbi/Colocasia Thick Chips

Chips - I know I know, it sounds unhealthy. But, what if they are not deep fried? Yes, that does sound like a crunchy yummy snack.


1 pound arbi/colocasia
crushed pepper
chilli powder
chat masala
oil for shallow frying


Clean the arbi very well to remove all dirt. Place it in a vegetable steamer and steam till its cooked. Do not overcook it or cook it in water, it will become mushy.
Once its cooled down, remove the skin and make 1/8 inch slices. In a cast iron pan add oil and shallow fry the arbi disks. Once it gets golden brown on both sides, remove it an place on a paper towel. Sprinkle salt, pepper, chilli powder and chat masala when the arbi disks are hot.
Enjoy it just like that or as a side with plain dal and rice.

Crispy Baked Tilapia

My neighbor made this for me one day - it was so tasty and yum and I was pleasantly surprised to know that it was baked and not fried. I asked her for the recipe and she obliged. Thanks Kiran for this lovely and quick recipe - its a favorite at our place.


4 Skinless and boneless tilapia fillets - cut into 2 inch pieces (I used the frozen and vacuumed packed fillets)
1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
5 tablespoons pancake mix powder


Defrost the fish fillets and cut into 2 inch pieces. Pat them dry. Mix the chilli powder, turmeric powder, curry powder, salt and ginger garlic paste. Apply this mixture to the fish and let it stand for 10 minutes.
Pre-heat the over to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a plate add the pancake mix powder. Dab the marinated fish in the powder so that it is fully covered. Place this on a oiled baking sheet. Let it bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or till the top turns crispy.
Serve with some salad and french fries - it really tastes like fish and chips :)
